French president Emmanuel Macron's dog Nemo has interrupted a meeting his master was having with members of his government by urinating against a fireplace in the Elysee Palace.

French TV channel LCI broadcast the incident, which was caught on film in an opulent room in the presidential palace.

When Mr 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 this happened often, Mr Macron laughed and told him: "You have triggered completely unusual behaviour in my dog."

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