    Far-left French presidential candidate Jean Luc Melenchon has been wooing supporters at a rally in Marseilles.

    The southern city is known for its strong support for the National Front and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.

    But Melenchon has gained momentum following a strong performance in last week's TV debate and polls show that he is gaining popularity.
