Already feeling President Obama withdrawal? 

While Election Day is in full swing, and we sit hours away from finding out who will be the next U.S. president, Ricky Martin took to social media to post a photo of him alongside Obama, thanking him for an "outstanding presidency" and adding, "What an amazing leader." 

The Puerto Rican superstar, who was one of the first Latin artists to endorse Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, also reminded his millions of followers to go out and vote: "Now, everyone be part of history. Go out and vote." 

Just as he campaigned for President Obama in 2008 and 2012, Martin has also been an active ally to the Clinton campaign by reinforcing the importance of the Latino vote in the elections, while condemning the Republican nominee Donald Trump's hateful comments about immigrants. 

Back in June, the "Disparo al corazón" performed at Clinton's "She's With Us" star-studded concert in Los Angeles, where he stated: "I do believe that Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States."
