How to remove multiple spaces from a string in Python

We can remove multiple spaces from a string with a single space by using the re.sub() method in Python which is imported from the re library.

The re.sub() method accepts three arguments, first one is regex pattern, the second one is replacer and the third one is string you need to remove the white spaces.

Here is an example that removes the white spaces from the following string:

import re

msg = "Hello  Python    World"

removeSpaces = re.sub('\\s+', ' ', msg)

print(s)

Output:

"Hello Python World"
