Polls have closed in the first round of the presidential vote, and Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will fight for the French presidency after the country’s two main parties crashed out of the first round for the first time since the founding of the Fifth Republic in 1958.

First projections based on partial results showed Emmanuel Macron, a former minister and leader of the centrist En Marche! party and with Ms Le Pen, the far-Right Front National leader, just behind on just under 22 per cent.

Voter turnout was higher than expected in the closely watched race that could ultimately change the future of Europe.
