Inhabitants of the tiny city state of Singapore have the most powerful passports in the world, it has been revealed.

But the usefulness of a US passport has fallen slightly since President Donald Trump took office, with Turkey and the Central African Republic becoming the most recent countries to revoke visa-free entry for holders.

A new ranking of world passports by website Passport Index found that citizens of Singapore can travel to the highest number of countries visa-free.

It took the top spot after Paraguay removed restrictions which had been in place for Singaporeans.
