Austria's far-right candidate Norbert Hofer gets another shot at becoming president in a second-round vote on Sunday after a May election was annulled by the constitutional court due to irregularities. Another close contest is forecast between Hofer and independent candidate Alexander Van der Bellen. Our correspondents went to Burgenland, a rural province in the east where Hofer enjoys strong support, to see why the far right is so popular.
