Just as he prepares to send his troops to war, France’s President is getting himself in shape too. New photos shared by the official photographer of the French Republic show a surprisingly hench Emmanuel Macron letting a few haymakers loose on the punching bag.

Macron’s sartorial choices have long played an important role in his public messaging. Shortly after the Russian invasion, the President donned a stylish turtle neck to encourage French citizens to turn off the heating. And before that, during his Zelensky-larp phase, he wore a black hoodie bearing the logo of an elite parachute unit. Even if most of the French population doesn’t want to go to war, there’s at least one person who seems up for it.
