Brigitte Macron: Introducing France's most unusual First Lady ever

Markets had been rallying for weeks in anticipation of a victory by Emmanuel Macron, and analysts said that left little upside for when the result actually occurred.

In addition, the interior ministry reported a record number of blank and invalid ballots, accounting for nine per cent of all registered voters, compared to two per cent in the first round.

The Macron team said that the new president had had a "cordial" telephone conversation with Ms. Le Pen.

Unknown to voters before his turbulent 2014-16 tenure as France's pro-business economy minister, Macron took a giant gamble by quitting Socialist President Francois Hollande's government to run as an independent in his first campaign.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said: "France is one of our closest allies and we look forward to working with the new president". Her desire to free France from the European Union and the shared euro currency contrasted with his argument that both are essential for the future of Europe's third-largest economy.

He came up grimacing and holding the wrist but remained in the game, taking the next two possessions on drives to the basket. After news of Chyna's death, No. 1-seed Boston fell into a 2-0 hole to the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.

Macron won the presidency with 66 percent of votes cast for a candidate.

In an early plea for unity, Macron reached out to Le Pen's supporters after a vicious election campaign that exposed deep economic and social divisions, as well as tensions provoked by identity and immigration.

"I am more than relieved, I am delighted to see that Emmanuel Macron has won the election by a wide margin", Catherine Cesarsky, an astrophysicist at the CEA, France's atomic energy commission, told Nature News.

She adds that Macron has been widely viewed as a better candidate than Le Pen though he has not elaborated on how to engage the African Diaspora in his manifesto.

Although his presidential candidacy had support from other political parties, much of it stemmed from the need to defeat Ms. Le Pen.

Senator Amy Klobuchar asked Ms Yates on Monday if her message to the White House was more formal than a simple heads up. The hearing brought the issue of the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russian officials back into the public eye.

François Hollande and his protégé Mr Macron took part in a VE Day commemorations in Paris - hours after Macron's presidential election win.

Macron and his fellow European leaders face a formidable challenge over the next five years to prevent that from happening. Among Le Pen's proposals was to have a referendum on European Union and euro membership - and experts agree the euro wouldn't have survived the departure of its founding member and second-biggest economy.

"The Prime Minister and President-elect Macron looked forward to meeting and holding discussions at the upcoming North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and G7 summits".

"I call on all patriots to join us", Le Pen said. Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni tweeted. There was an official French media blackout on sharing the specific contents of the hacking before the vote, and the troves of data did not appear to have had a large impact on the election's result. Fillon is facing charges in the case. "He appeals to people's hopes, and not their fears".

Trading was calm following the weekend's presidential election in France, which had the potential to upset global markets.
