In France, John has sold more than 2.3 million copies of 'The very best of Elton John', a rare achievement a double-CD set. His single 'Can you feel the love tonight' from ' The lion king' soundtrack has sold a half-million units in France.
Billboard magazine date 03/10/97.

https://books.google.fr/books?id=1wkEAAAAMBAJ&pg=RA1-PA9&dq=france+gall+1980+billboard&hl=fr&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi68KGQzpvfAhUOCRoKHQfMC04Q6AEIOzAD#v=onepage&q=france%20gall%201980%20billboard&f=false

Obvioulsy, they must have applied the same rule as with the RIAA an double counted the sales of the album as they do with every double album with a lengh exceeding 70 minutes.

Among the most successful artists in history, John has grossed $1.2 billion since Billboard Boxscore began tracking touring data in 1990. With approximately 250 dates left before the curtain closes, we could see his final gross climb past the $1.5 billion mark.
