The victory of President Normal

It's the morning after the night before - and the French press are celebrating the victory of its first Socialist president in 17 years. There won't be much of a honeymoon though - we look at the challenges ahead.

Liberation is celebrating the victory of their champion - but they also say he will have his work cut out trying to mend the deep divisions Sarkozyism has dug in France.

Le Figaro resist the temptation to attack straight away - while Communist paper l'Humnaité has some very high expectations for the new president, which he'll find it hard to fulfil.
