President-elect Donald Trump has picked former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to form a team of private sector cybersecurity experts.

Mr Giuliani, once a leading contender for secretary of state, said Mr Trump would meet the team on a regular basis.

He was selected because of his private sector cybersecurity expertise, a Trump transition team statement said.

Mr Trump has said he plans to create a cybersecurity team within his first 90 days in office.

Mr Giuliani's appointment follows Russian hackers' apparent attempt to meddle in November's US election.

Mr Trump accepted for the first time at a press conference on Wednesday that the Russians were behind the cyber-breach.
