Visiting Japan to attend the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics, the President of the Republic received a gift from Eiichirō Oda, the mangaka behind

, namely a drawing featuring the main characters of the manga.

"Passionate about

, I share with you this original drawing offered by its author," tweeted Emmanuel Macron this Friday evening in a publication that made Internet users react a lot.
