Emmanuel Macron with the Australian Prime Minister and his wife, Malcom and Lucy Turnbull

Australians should remember for a long time Emmanuel Macron's visit to their country. Indeed, our French President was noticed by an embarrassing slip while he was speaking in English before the Australian Prime Minister and his wife, Malcom and Lucy Turnbull.

"Thank you and your lovely wife for your warm welcome," said Emmanuel Macron as a thank you at a press conference in Sydney on Wednesday, May 2. Unfortunately, to express himself in English, the Head of State used the expression "your delicious wife", thus provoking a very nasty slip. Because in this context, it is the adjective "delightful" that should have been used by the President of the Republic, the word "delicious" being a false friend rather used to talk about food or for allusions of a sexual nature.

This mistake, in the mouth of a head of state who is rather known for good command of the English language, made people laugh. The video of Macron's speech has been shared many times on social networks. "Maybe he had his lunch in mind," he laughed. Sydney Morning Herald.
