An egg was thrown at French President Emmanuel Macron during his visit to a trade fair in Lyon, a city in the European country.
The incident occurred when he was visiting the stands of the International Catering, Hotel, and Food Show (SIRHA).
The French President was warmly greeted by restaurant professionals at the trade fair, with many thanking Macron’s government for providing state aid to the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The egg, which was thrown, however, did not break but simply bounced off his shoulders.
The culprit who threw the egg was seen after the incident and detained.
Reacting to the the incident, Macron stated that “If he has something to tell me, let him come, I’ll go see him afterwards.”
This is not the first time he has received such unimaginable welcome from people.
When he was a candidate for presidency in 2017, an egg was thrown towards his direction in Paris.
Earlier in June, a person slapped him when he was shaking palms with well-wishers within the southern metropolis of Valence.
