French presidential candidate Francois Fillon has been placed under a formal investigation over an alleged diversion of public funds, the prosecutors say, the BBC reported.

The centre-right contender is suspected of paying hundreds of thousands of euros to his family for a work they may have not done.

He denies any wrongdoing, but had earlier said he would quit the presidential race if placed under investigation.
