    The new French President Emmanuel Macron arrived at the Elysee a little after 10am on Sunday. He was greeted by outgoing President François Hollande. They then had a brief meeting lasting around 10 minutes, so Hollande could hand over power.

    The wife of the President-elect, Brigitte, arrived at the Elysee a few minutes before her husband.
