In the video, Macron, dressed in a grey pair of trousers and a white long-sleeved shirt alongside his bodyguards were rushing to calm a group of protesters leaning against a barricade.

The French President humbled himself and reached out to the protesters before one of them pulled a hot five in his face.

Visibly upset, Macron was held back by his grotesque bodyguards. The person who slapped him was restrained by the police.

Reuters reports that a man identified as Damien Tarel aged 28 ran a club for enthusiasts of medieval swordsmanship and had no previous criminal record.

Tarel’s acquaintances described him as a man who loved period role-play and did not cause trouble. While the motive behind the slap is still unknown, media reports say Tarel is under investigation for assault against a public official.
