On his first field trip since winning the presidential election, French President Emmanuel Macron was pelted with tomatoes at a market near the French capital, Paris.

French President Emmanuel Macron was pelted with tomatoes on Wednesday during a field trip to a market near Paris, his first since winning a new presidential term on Sunday, AFP correspondents reported.

As the president was chatting with passersby in the middle of the Cergy-Pontoise market in the northwestern suburb of Paris, cherry tomatoes were thrown at him.

The security personnel who were guarding the president opened an "umbrella" to protect him and escort him to the closed area in the market.

Those close to Macron denied that the tomato had hit the president, explaining that the parachute was opened due to the tension in the crowds.
