A bust of Winston Churchill was unveiled at the US Capitol before a crowd that included US Secretary of State John Kerry and the prime minister's grandson.

"This is one of history's true love stories," said Speaker of the House John Boehner in his opening remarks, "between a great statesman and a nation he called the great republic. And we're here to bring it full circle."

The unveiling comes 50 years after Churchill was granted honorary US citizenship.
