Centrist leader Francois Bayrou has announced his support for Socialist candidate Francois Hollande in Sunday's presidential election.

Bayrou came fifth in the first round of voting, taking 9.1% of the vote.

If his supporters join him in voting for Hollande, it would deal a significant blow to Nicholas Sarkozy's chances for re-election.

Although Bayrou once served with the president in a right-wing cabinet, he says he has gone too far to the right.
