Turnout was 78 per cent, down slightly from the 79 per cent turnout in the first round of presidential voting in 2012.

"We are in a phase of decomposition, demolition, deconstruction", former Socialist prime minister Manuel Valls said.

In the end, Mr Fillon trailed in third with 20.01 per cent, ahead of radical left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon on 19.58 per cent.

Asian equities were steady on Tuesday and the euro retained gains as markets' euphoria over a centrist victory in the first round of the French presidential election subsided, though near-term investor sentiment remains positive.
