Obama in tears during last presidential speech
It was an emotional farewell in Chicago, when US President Barack Hussein Obama hopefully made his last speech as president Tuesday night.

The tears came at the end of the 50-minute long speech when he turned to his wife to thank her, reports CNN.

"Michelle Lavaughn Robinson, girl of the South Side -- for the past 25 years, you have not only been my wife, the mother of my children, you have been my best friend," Obama said. "You took on a job you didn't ask for, and you made it your own with grace and with grit and with style and good humor."

Shortly after the speech, Michelle Obama tweeted a picture of the presidential family and wrote:

"So proud of @POTUS and all that we've accomplished together. An incredible journey filled with remarkable people. I love you Barack. -mo"

In his speech, President Barack Hussein Obama took up threats to democracy, but he also urged his followers to believe that change and progress are possible.

The speech ended with a reference to his famous election slogan eight years ago.

- Yes, we can. Yes we did. Yes we can.
