François Hollande lurched deeper into crisis on Sunday as it emerged that France's First Lady was being treated in hospital after learning of the president's alleged love affair and a report linked the apartment he used for his romantic rendezvous to Corsican mobsters.

Valérie Trierweiler was admitted to a Paris clinic on Friday suffering from stress shortly after learning of allegations that Mr Hollande had spent nights in a flat near the Elysée Palace with an actress.
