A mysterious red motorcycle was spotted to drive amid the convoy bringing French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte from Athens airport to the center of Greece’s capital Thursday noon.
A traffic policeman attempted to get the motorbike off the road, but the driver continued his way. He followed the cars with the esteemed guests, high-ranking local and French politicians and diplomats. And, of course, lots of Greek and French security personnel escorting the French president in a city that is supposed to be a castle in terms of security measures.
