CHICAGO, USA (UPDATED) – US President Barack Obama delivered his farewell speech Tuesday, January 10, returning to the city of Chicago where his meteoric rise to become America’s first black president all began. (FULL TEXT: Barack Obama’s farewell address)

The speech in Chicago bookends the political career of a charismatic statesman known for his powerful oratory.

It was at the city’s Grant Park that Obama first spoke publicly after winning the White House for the first time in 2008.

The third largest US city is also important to his post-presidency: it will be home to the Obama presidential library and foundation.
