Guterres is optimistic that he can make a difference, while recognising the limitations of his role, as the UN faces a complex range of global issues.

Antonio Guterres, former Portuguese prime minister and former UN high commissioner for refugees, will officially become the next UN secretary general on Monday.

He says he knows it won’t be an easy job.
