France's next president? Fillon flattens centre-right rivals (part 2)

He came out of nowhere to nearly score a first-round knockout: François Fillon flattened the field in France's first-ever conservative primaries. Who is this 62-year-old who mounted a late surge that stole Sarkozy's thunder?

Produced by Charles WENTE, François WIBAUX and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
