C'est sous le soleil de la capitale qu'Emmanuel Macron a fait son apparition samedi en fin de journée sous le Pont Alexandre III.

Sa partie de tennis s'est jouée en mode handisport, en fauteuil roulant et aux côtés de plusieurs joueurs célèbres tels que Lucas Pouille et Michaël Jeremiasz, avant qui n'enfile des gants de boxe. "Sur les réseaux sociaux, les réactions fusent".

Après un bain de foule et de nombreux selfie, le président s'est ensuite rendu sur une plateforme flottante sur la Seine pour un petit entrainement de boxe. Le jeune président s'est toutefois montré moins offensif dans cette discipline.

"Il y a ce formidable esprit universel dans l'olympisme (.) mais quand je participe, je préfère toujours gagner".
