"Sad for the United Kingdom. Europe carries on but it must react and win back the trust of its people. It is urgent," he tweeted.

French President Francois Hollande was expected to react to the news after a ministerial meeting on Friday morning.

"It's more than the future of the United Kingdom that is at stake, it's the future of the European Union," Hollande said on Wednesday.
