See French President Emmanuel Macron slapped in the face during walkabout
A man slapped President Emmanuel Macron across the face during an official visit in the south-east of France.
In a video widely circulating on social media, the president is seen walking up to a barrier where crowds had gathered to see him on a trip to Tain-l’Hermitage outside the city of Valence.
As he leans into the crowd a man suddenly lashes out and catches the president across the face.
Officers immediately rush in as Mr Macron is pulled away to safety.
The words “Down with Macron-ism” are shouted as the president is struck.
Two men were arrested in the wake of the incident, according to French media.
