Separated by thousands of miles, French President Francois Hollande and his longtime companion Valerie Trierweiler faced the cameras Monday as they adjusted to life following the confirmation of their split.

Trierweiler was in India for a long-planned charity trip, while Hollande was meeting with his Turkish counterpart in Ankara. On Saturday, he announced their separation following a media storm over allegations he is having an affair with an actress.
