Public hostility to President Macron is running so high that he has had to give up a skiing trip this week and is staying out of sight to avoid provoking the gilet jaune protesters.

The French president, who turned 41 last week, was advised by aides to keep a low profile over the Christmas period after six weeks of revolt by provincial activists who have vented their anger at his policies and him personally.

Although the numbers involved in the protests have fallen in the past fortnight, several hundred people still spent Christmas night manning camps at highway roundabouts across the country.

Mr Macron, whose approval rating is about 20 per cent, was persuaded not to go skiing at La Mongie.
