The world cup champions, also known among fans as "Les Bleus", will arrive at Charles de Gaulle Airport north of Paris at around 3.30 p.m., reports Efe news.
The French president was a delighted man and he was spotted passionately celebrating from the stands of Luzhniki Stadium during the action-packed final. But for the moment, over to France for the celebrations.
"It's a great feeling".
"We hope to overcome all the difficulties", he said. "Honestly, it's a dream come true. Overall, I am proud". It's a privilege for me to be part of this team.
He kissed France teammates Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann on their foreheads.

With Messi's Argentina and Ronaldo's Portugal stumbling out of the competition on the very same day, it allowed two other players to flourish.
Mbappe then scored himself, his fourth of the tournament, to make it 4-1.
Fans wearing red and white and waving Croatia flags poured into the streets in the city centre to greet the players, giving them a heroes' welcome as they passed in an open bus and signed autographs. Croatia's Mario Mandzukic inadvertently headed the ball into his own net in the 18th minute.
Do you need a hug?

The Yugoslav wars are still a relatively recent memory for the nation of just 4 million people, not just in the minds of fans, but also players.
The Qatari emir said his country would apply all its efforts to making a success of the 2022 World Cup. The French prodigy has also been tailed by Real Madrid, who recently rebuffed links with him in an official statement.
