From aviators to ice-cream, Joe Biden has developed a legacy that will leave him not only remembered as a US Vice President but as America's wise-cracking, kind old friend.
As the US (and the world) braces itself for a Donald Trump presidency, it's also a perfect time to recap on the last 8 years of Biden and his ever eccentric, unapologetic ways.
Recently, we've seen Biden awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama, a surprising and personal moment that saw him reduced to tears.
And who can forget when he wore those famous, meme-worthy aviators during his entire 'class day' speech at Yale in 2015? What a legend.
Enjoy the top ten moments Biden has blessed the world with over the last 8 years. Oh and don't you worry, we didn't forget all the bloody brilliant memes he sparked too.
