French President Emmanuel Macron was hit on the shoulder Monday by an egg thrown at him by a man during a visit to an international food trade fair in the French city of Lyon.
A video of the incident, widely shared on the social media, shows Macron walking through the crowd when an egg bounced off him without breaking. Two bodyguards can be seen immediately getting closer to the president.
The video also shows a man being taken away from the scene by other bodyguards.
Reporters heard Macron saying “If he has something to tell me, then he can come.”
