Pistols at dawn presumably
Emmanuel Macron has been slapped across the face during a walkabout to greet voters in France today.
The assailant took the French President by the arm, appearing to stop him for a chat, before shouting: 'Down with Macronia' ('A Bas La Macronie') as he delivered the blow.
Bodyguards quickly seized upon the man and bundled him to the ground, as a member of Macron's security detail pulled the president to safety.
Surely M Macron does not intend to ignore such a challenge to his honour. Pistols or swords I'd say.
