It was deemed the debate of the century before it even began; the televised head-to-head between the first-ever female Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential?nominee Donald Trump, undoubtedly made for compelling viewing: for much of the 90 minutes Trump defended AKA shouted (and sniffed his way through) the record against charges of racism, sexism and tax avoidance while Clinton had to retaliate against failings in her decades-long political history and trade (issues that have helped Trump in the polls) and her?”lack of stamina” for the upcoming presidency – despite visiting 112 countries in four years as secretary of state. ?Clinton was quick to address the future legacy of opportunity for women while Trump, who has continually denied the existence of a gender pay gap, did little to mention how he would improve the lives of women in the workplace and beyond. All in all, it was a charged debate; yet polls affirm Clinton?won, (48% to his 46%) calm and in control’she?emerged victorious – “When Donald Trump spends 11 hours testifying in front of a congressional committee, he can talk to me about stamina? – against a floundering competitor who ducked and dodged at every opportunity. Yes, to the surprise of few, Trump (who lives in his “own reality”) appeared painfully unprepared – “I have a son who’s 10, he’s so good with computers,” was his response to US cybersecurity weaknesses – yet?Clinton’s supposed “smugness” irritated some spectators. The polls are tight but there’s still much to play for before voters?hit the polls in November, this (despite Clinton’s historic nomination) is going to be a close race.

Throughout it all, the best form of commentary came from social media; viewers got a kick out of what was possibly the wackiest presidential debate in US history. Scroll down for a selection of some of the best reactions:
