Washington, Nov 7: When Barack Obama won the US Presidential election for a second time, all an ecstatic leader did was hugged his wife Michelle on Tuesday, Nov 6. And the moment captured in a photograph has set new Facebook and Twitter record. The picture with the simple caption 'four more years' has been 'liked' 2.1 million times on the social media site.

"With more than 2.1 million likes, this Barack Obama photo is the most-liked Facebook photo of all time," announced Facebook on Wednesday.

It was also the most retweeted photo ever. The photo has been retweeted 7,74,076 times and 'favourited' 2,73,085 times at the time of writing this report. The last time a photo was this popular, it was Justin Bieber paying tribute to a fan who died of brain cancer.

Obama's retweets crushed the previous record holder Justin Bieber's 2,23,401 retweets.

After winning the election by defeating Republican rival Mitt Romney, Obama addressed the nation. He made an impassioned victory speech saying "Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too".

Obama told cheering supporters early on Wednesday that "the best is yet to come" for the United States as he stormed to a second term by defeating Republican rival Mitt Romney. "In this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. We have fought our way back," Obama told hundreds of cheering supporters.

"We know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come."
