Senegal's President Abdoulaye Wade has admitted defeat in a run-off election to his rival Macky Sall, state television says.
It says he conceded in a telephone call to the former prime minister.
Mr Wade had changed the constitution to be able to run for a third consecutive term. The move sparked violent protests earlier this year, leaving six people dead.
Mr Wade, 85, has ruled the West African nation for 12 years.
