French President Francois Hollande announced his separation from first lady Valerie Trierweiler on Saturday, following a media storm over allegations he is having an affair with an actress.

"I wish to make it known that I have ended my partnership with Valerie Trierweiler," he told AFP.

The announcement came after a day of rumors in the French media that Hollande would formally announce the breakup on Saturday, on the eve of Trierweiler's visit to India for charity work. Hollande and Trierweiler are not married.
