France's independent centrist presidential candidate, Emmanuel Macron, has been riding high in public opinion polls, but someone who's clearly not a fan tossed an egg at his head. reports that, while visiting the annual Paris farm fair on Wednesday — a must stop for candidates in the spring presidential election — Macron got hit on the back of his head with an egg. The yolk dripped over his face.

He said: "We propose solutions, we can talk about it. We can disagree and some might throw you eggs....It's part of French political life. It always has been."

Still, the candidate, who's making his first run for elected office, said he "deplored" the egg throwing "because it doesn't elevate political dialogue."

Polls currently show Macron as the most likely winner, though analysts caution against any firm forecasts after a rollercoaster campaign and the surprises of Brexit and Trump in 2016.

Conservative candidate Francois Fillon was the clear frontrunner until January when newspaper Le Canard Enchaine brought his wife's job to light.
