As Icelanders prepare to go the polls to decide who will be their next president, the current incumbent is facing his first serious challenger in 16 years.

Thora Arnorsdottir is a 37-year-old unmarried mother of three, including a four-week-old daughter.

She is already a public figure through her work as a television reporter and is one of five people challenging Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, who is hoping to win a record fifth term.

Luisa Baldini went to meet Ms Arnorsdottir and her baby daughter at their home in Reykjavik to find out why she is running for president.
