Le Tallec retired from football in 2021 and has since been coaching Annecy FC, with the striker taking to Instagram to give an account of the revolting scenes.

“I was running by the Lake and I saw around 10 people running in the opposite direction to me.

“I asked them what was happening and someone told me, run, run, there is someone stabbing people.

“He has stabbed some children, run, run!

“I saw the guy opposite me, being chased by cops five or ten metres behind him, trying to catch him.

“…. I continued. I saw children at the end of the lake, some children on the ground. Some injured children, it’s horrible.”

The children are understood to have been assaulted by a lone man wielding a blade at around 9:45am today, June 8 near a lake – according to reports from AFP based on information from an anonymous security source.

In total, eight children and one adult have been injured, with reports from Le Parisien, BFM TV and AFP alleging that the assailant was a Syrian asylum seeker.

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin tweeted that the suspect, "has been arrested thanks to the rapid reaction of security forces".

He continued: "Several people, including children, were injured by an individual armed with a knife in a square in Annecy."
