# President Emmanuel Macron has urged French people to start exercising daily as Paris prepares to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Posting a video clip of himself on X, formerly Twitter, in a T-shirt, boxing gloves slung over his shoulder and with a punching bag in the background, the president urged his compatriots to work out at least 30 minutes a day. With 200 days remaining before the Games kick off on 26 July, Macron said the government was promoting sports this year. This includes boosting physical education instruction in schools.
