French papers look at the political bombshell for President Emmanuel Macron, whose centrist bloc emerged from Sunday's second round of the legislative elections well short of an absolute majority in parliament. Libération, the main left-wing daily, describes the results for his group as a "slap", while Le Parisien and Le Figaro headline that France is now "ungovernable". Macron will be unable to push on with his legislative agenda without significant opposition support.

We finish with an editorial arguing that the United States – its policies and institutions – is its own worst enemy.

And we take a look at the larger-than-life work of a French graffiti artist who has headed to Cape Town to make his mark.
