The French president flew directly from Doha, where he attended the football World Cup final between France and Argentina that the Blues lost in a penalty shootout after dramatic 120 minutes.

Emmanuel Macron will express Monday evening, in front of the sailors of the aircraft carrier, his confidence and his support for the armed forces, the Elysée said.

Macron has missed the troops' celebrations for the past two years. He will sleep aboard the steel giant before joining Jordan on Tuesday.
