There’s no doubting French President Emmanuel Macron’s excellent grasp of English.

But given French and English share numerous words that sound similar but have different meanings, there’s bound to be some expressions that get lost in translation.

Macron, who is currently visiting Australia, left people scratching their heads when he referred to the Australian prime minister’s wife, Lucy Turnbull, as “delicious” at a press conference on Wednesday. 

“I want to thank you for your welcome, you and your delicious wife,” he said.
