Paris – French President Emmanuel Macron's dog Nemo interrupted a meeting his master was having with members of his government when he urinated against a fireplace in the Elysee Palace.

French TV channel LCI on Sunday broadcast the incident, which was caught on film in a gilded and chandeliered room in the presidential palace.

When Macron realised his black Labrador-Griffon cross had just relieved himself nearby, he told the ministers that the dog "was doing something quite exceptional".

Asked by one if it happened often, Macron laughed and told him: "You have triggered completely unusual behaviour in my dog."

Nemo was adopted by Macron and his wife, Brigitte, and named after Captain Nemo, the fictional hero of Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
