"The Munich attacks in 1972 did not prevent the Games"

Questioned about the consequences that the arrival of an RN government could have during the Paris Olympics (July 26-August 11), Guy Drut, member of the board of directors of the organizing committee of the Olympic Games, was reassuring."The Olympic Games are going to go well. The attacks in Munich in 1972 did not prevent the Games from taking place. There is no reason for things to go badly with an RN government", declared the former RPR MP, 1976 Olympic champion in the 110 m hurdles .

Criticism towards Kylian Mbappé

Guy Drut also criticized in this interview the recent positions of footballers Kylian Mbappé and Marcus Thuram, notably pointing out "political correctness" of the first.

"If Marcus Thuram, who plays in Milan, does not feel comfortable in this country, let him play in England or elsewhere", added Guy Drut.
