Marine Le Pen
After a close race against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidential election, becoming the country's youngest leader. In his unorthodox private life and short political career, Macron has battled conventions and broken with traditions.
French presidential candidate, Emmanuel Macron's campaign said on Friday it had been the target of a "massive" computer hack that dumped its campaign emails online a day and a half before voters go to the polls to choose between the centrist and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen.
The media battle heats up: France's presidential hopefuls Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen are accused by the Russian and French press of denying access to them. Meanwhile, Barack Obama is criticised for accepting a $400,000 speaking gig in September.
