French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face on Tuesday by a man in a crowd of onlookers while on a walkabout in southern France, video of the incident showed.

Macron's security entourage quickly intervened to pull the man to the ground and move Macron away from him. Two people were arrested in connection with the incident, broadcasters BFM TV and RMC radio reported.

The incident took place while Macron was on a visit to the Drome region in south-eastern France, where he met restaurateurs and students to talk about how life is returning to normal after the COVID-19 epidemic.

In video circulating on social media, Macron, dressed in shirt sleeves, could be seen walking towards a crowd of well-wishers who were behind a metal barrier. The French president reached out his hand to greet one man, in a green T-Shirt, with glasses and a face mask.

The man could be heard shouting out "Down with Macronia" ("A Bas La Macronie") and then he delivered a slap to Macron's face.

Classy.  I'm sure the guy that did the slapping is infallible and a completely upstanding person.

Unaccceptable, physical or verbal abuse is a no no. You don't like a politician you vote to remove them.

Ouch. 

A fine example of the French slap, so a bit half hearted. Was he challenging Macron to a dual? :gun:

Will macron arrive at the G7 meeting with a big hand mark embossed on his cheek. 

These question and many others will be answered shortly.  ;)
