Cambodia's long-serving authoritarian prime minister Hun Sen has congratulated Donald Trump on his US presidential election victory.

On his official Facebook page, Hun Sen called Trump "your excellency" and pointed out that he'd announced his support for the Republican candidate several days earlier.
