Emmanuel Macron in hot water over French presidential swimming pool on the Riviera


French President Emmanuel Macron has landed in some hot water over plans to build a new swimming pool at his private presidential retreat.

The planned pool at Fort Brégançon, on France’s south-east coast, is designed to provide privacy for the president’s family, and particularly children.

Past presidents have been photographed at the retreat’s “private” beach in their swimwear.

But Mr Macron’s political opponents have painted it as an extravagance.
