Joe Biden's press conference after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin ended on a more tetchy note.

The US president snapped at CNN's Kaitlan Collins who had asked him whether he was confident that Mr Putin would change his behaviour.

Prior to his departure from Geneva, Biden expressed regret for some sharp words to a reporter who questioned him about the success of his summit with Vladimir Putin.

Biden told the reporters on the tarmac he had been a "wise guy" in his answer.

The initial exchange came at the press conference after Biden's meeting with Putin in Geneva earlier Wednesday.
