FIFA World Cup 2018 came to an end with France taking the cup home after 20 years, beating Croatia in the final. The match had many intense moments and just like fans around the globe, the politicians present on the stands couldn’t keep calm. One such photo of the French President Emmanuel Macron, who was watching the match at the stadium, is going viral. He dispensed with all protocol or formality and jumped up from his seat celebrating by thrusting his hands in the air. The photo was shared by many on social media dubbing it “Macron’s reaction sums up everything”.
Soon the photo went viral and some turned it into a meme, particularly, desi meme-makers found it rather interesting.
