USUALLY THE WORST thing politicians have to contend during a speech is hecklers.

However French presidential candidate Francois Hollande had to face the floury wrath of a protester as he gave a speech last night.

The Socialist Party candidate was signing a “social contract” to support housing for all when the protester ran on stage and covered him in flour.

Hollande, who is currently leading the polls, stayed impressively calm during the incident.

And here it is in pics:
