Former vice president Walter Mondale dies at 93

Former US vice president Walter Mondale has died at the age of 93, his family has announced.

Mr Mondale served as the vice president under Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and his own run for the White House in 1984 ended in a historic one-sided defeat to Ronald Reagan.

The Democratic Party’s nominee had Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman, on the ticket, and lost every state except his home one of Minnesota.
