This Sunday afternoon, Emmanuel Macron has an appointment from 15 hours. Since the presidential residence of the Lantern (Versailles), where he likes to spend his weekends, the head of state will not miss a crumb of the television final of Roland-Garros. Like Friday already. He followed the shock Federer-Nadal since the Elysee. Like the days before. The head of state regularly took a look at the other matches of the fortnight, between two meetings.
Because it's no secret that tennis is one of his favorite sports. Formerly ranked 15-4, the president still taps the ball as soon as he can. Especially when he goes to Le Touquet (Pas-de-Calais), "even if it is necessary to privatize a court and the weight room just for him," grumbles the former mayor LR of the seaside town, Daniel Fasquelle.
Question sport, Emmanuel Macron – who is also engaged in boxing in the basement dojo of the Elysee to maintain its shape – has also been served these days. Especially on the football side, his other favorite discipline, since he attended Friday the opening game of the Blue from the stand of honor of the Parc des Princes.
