Place your French election bets - Hollande for a comeback?

Place your French election bets - Hollande for a comeback?

France's presidential elections has become so unpredictable that gamblers are betting on a second term for the sitting president, even though he bowed out of the contest last year and his party has since picked another candidate.

British bookmakers reopened the market for bets on the deeply unpopular Socialist President Francois Hollande due to demand from customers.

The chances of him changing his mind and going on to win are now put at 100-to-1, where a 1 pound ($1.25) bet would pay out 100 pounds.
