The French president is clearly enjoying his trip to New York, where he took time out to visit Times Square and made a beeline for a group of dancers from the Moulin Rouge.

Hollande is in New York for a meeting of the UN General Assembly, but he had perhaps had enough of diplomats on Sunday.

The president caused a stir when he turned up at the “Best of France” event in Times Square, which is highlighting the best France has to offer.

Whilst there Hollande once again demonstrated his love for the selfie as he posed for photos with bystanders.

Aside from French entrepreneurs and business leaders Hollande provided the press with the photo opportunity they had been looking for when he posed with 17 dancers from The Moulin Rouge.

“This is the only thing they will be talking about from my trip,” he is reported to have told the troupe.
