It’s Christmas…and Johnny Hallyday on the front pages

FRENCH PRESS REVIEW: Most of the front pages of French papers are on Christmas this morning but Johnny Hallyday’s release from hospital also features prominently.

France Soir and Le Parisien wish everyone a ‘joyous Christmas’ on their front pages. They also feature photos of French rock legend Johnny Hallyday who has been released from hospital in L.A. The singer was being treated for complications arising out of an operation in Paris in November on a slipped disk. Hallyday is to spend the Christmas period under medical supervision in L.A.
