Emmanuel Macron has won five more years as France’s president after a convincing victory over rival Marine Le Pen, who nevertheless secured the far right’s highest share of the vote yet.
The 44-year-old won by 58.55% to 41.45%, a greater margin than expected.
The centrist leader told jubilant supporters at the foot of the Eiffel Tower that now the election was over he would be a “president for all”.
He is the first sitting president in 20 years to be re-elected.
Despite her loss, Le Pen, 53, said her significant vote share still marked a victory.
