A young man throws an egg at Macron at a fair

An as yet unidentified young man threw an egg to French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday during a visit to the International Hotel and Restaurant Fair in Lyon.

The egg ricocheted off Macron’s shoulder without breaking, and the person was quickly cut down by the President’s security service.

“If you have something to tell me, let him come,” Macron said after the egg had been smashed aloud to “Le Figaro”. The exact reason the young man attacked the French president is currently unknown.

It’s not the first time they’re throwing eggs at Macron. In 2017, an egg cracked when it hit his head during a visit to the agricultural hall. Nor is it the first attack on the president to be slapped in the face while visiting the city of Tain in June. The attacker Damien Tarel was sentenced to four months in prison.

Macron is not the first French leader to be attacked. His predecessor, François Hollande, was thrown in flour when he presented a report on substandard housing when he was a presidential candidate.
