Recent Higgs results from CMS experiment

In July 2012 CMS announced the discovery of
a new boson with properties resembling those of the
long-sought Higgs boson. The analysis of the proton-proton
collision data recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC,
corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.1 fb^-1 at √s = 7 TeV
and 19.6 fb^-1 at √s = 8 TeV, confirm the Higgs-like nature
of the new boson, with a signal strength associated with vector
bosons and fermions consistent with the expectations for
a standard model Higgs boson, and spin-parity clearly favouring
the scalar nature of the new boson. In this talk
the updated results of the CMS experiment and recent property measurements
will be reviewed
