The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Macron scores a penalty in charity football match” – below is their description.
French President Emmanuel Macron, who has his eye firmly on the goal of elections next year, donned his football boots and marshalled the midfield at a charity match on Thursday.
After a kiss from his wife Brigitte, the 43-year-old was all smiles as he took to the pitch in Poissy outside Paris alongside former international defender Marcel Desailly and ex-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
Playing central midfield, Macron drew cheers from the crowd with his first touch – and was given plenty of space to turn from overawed opponents who retreated deferentially as he advanced with the ball.
