“Don’t break your equipment,” journalist Jean-Baptiste Boursier simply replied, continuing the interview with specialist from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) François Gemmene on Thursday live at LCI.

But while everything was going well, the man would have had the misfortune to drop the device which would have fallen at his feet, camera upwards, revealing that his more formal attire only stopped at the level of the belt .
Visibly embarrassed, we can then see him reappear on the screen, his face reddened, before continuing the interview as if nothing had happened.
“He is one of those who knows that even early in the morning, even on video, it is important to present yourself well,” commented Bertrand Chameroy, from ABC, while presenting the extract during his show.
