'Staycation': President Hollande tries to lead by example

President François Hollande will be spending his summer vacation on the French Mediterranean coast. It’s a bid to keep up the "Mr Normal" image which helped him win the presidential election in May. Next, France’s Interior Ministry is taking steps to boost security and law enforcement in the country’s crime hot spots. Fifteen of the worst-affected areas will benefit from police reinforcement and extra resources.

Finally, golden boy Tony Estanguet gets a third gold medal at the Olympics. The canoeist expects this to be his last Olympics and is setting his sights on a career with the International Olympic Committee.
