Nicolas Sarkozy looks carefree while relaxing with his model wife Carla Bruni in the Côte d’Azur

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy appears to have put his worries behind him as he joined his wife and sister-in-law to relax in the sea in the French Riviera. The politician, 66, is currently awaiting a verdict after a month-long corruption trial concluded in June, during which the court sought to determine whether he broke laws on campaign financing in his unsuccessful 2012 re-election bid. If found guilty, he could face up to six months in jail and a fine of 3,750 euros.
