FRENCH president Emmanuel Macron has entered self-isolation for seven days after testing positive for the coronavirus.

A statement said Macron had taken a test after showing the initial symptoms of the virus.


Macron is the latest in a string of world leaders to test positive for the virus.

The positive test comes just a day after he hosted Portuguese prime minister António Costa at the Élysee Palace.

He also held a meeting with Spanish prime minister Pedro Sánchez in Paris on Monday.

He had been due to visit Lebanon between December 22 and 23, but his isolation is not now due to end until December 24.

It comes as France began lifting a strict lockdown imposed following a spike in cases in the country.
