During his visit to Marseille on Saturday he responded in kind when a passer-by made an abusive gesture to him.

The incident was seized on by critics as a sign his campaign was beginning to implode.Ā 

But Mr Zemmour, who has yet to formally declare he is standing, is still polling well.Ā 

The magazine journalist turned TV pundit went on trial in Paris this month for ā€˜complicity in provoking racial hatred and racial insultā€™ after calling child migrants ā€˜thieves, rapists and murderersā€™.

A source close to Zemmour, who asked not to be named, told AFP that the gesture in Marseille was ā€˜instinctiveā€™, an action for which he assumed full responsibility.

ā€˜He told us ā€œI was insulted, I was shown the finger so I respondedā€,ā€™ said the source.

Mr Zemmour and Miss Knafo had complained of ā€˜invasion of privacyā€™ over the magazine article, but Paris judges ruled otherwise.

The pair are extremely high profile, and were pictured over the summer in an intimate clinch as they swam in the sea.

In a previous issue in October, Closer featured a photo of Mr Zemmour with a picture of his wife, lawyer Mylene Chichportich, whom he married in 1982.

The couple have three grown-up children, and journalists claimed it was in the public interest to know about his affair with Miss Knafo.

Zemmour has yet to formally declare he is standing in the 2022 elections but intense campaigning has left little doubt over his intentions and some polls had suggested he could make it to a second round against President Emmanuel Macron.
