Emmanuel Macron appeared on the BBC's Andrew Marr show on Sunday to discuss Brexit and his relationship with U.S. president Donald Trump.

The French President said Britain will not be able to "cherry pick" its desired elements of the single market but will be able to sign a bespoke deal if the country abides by Brussels' rules and regulations. It is possible that these relations are closer than in a simple trade deal, but the United Kingdom will not be able to choose how much access it will have on the European Union single market.

The comments undermine the position of some Brexit supporters who want to regain control of the U.K.'s borders and shun the oversight of European courts while retaining access to the single market.

The interview, broadcast this morning, was recorded earlier this week when Mr Macron came to the UK to meet with Theresa May for the joint UK-France Summit.

He also said that while he respected the result of the June 23 referendum, he would "love" to welcome the United Kingdom back.

However, Macron ruled out the possibility of the United Kingdom being part of the single market without accepting the EU's rules on freedom of movement, financial payments to EU funds and accepting European Court of Justice rulings.

"As soon as you decide not to join these preconditions, it's not a full access", Macron told the BBC.

Macron says the border issue "is a common challenge and we shall succeed together".

Macron said the USA could only choose between signing or not signing the treaty, adding "we will not renegotiate for one people". "What is important is to not make people believe that it is possible to [have your cake and eat it]".

Asked by Andrew Marr he said: "For sure".

However, the Frenchman did warn Britain would have to accept the European Union's four freedoms - free movement of goods, services, currency and people - if it wants to maintain its access to the single market.

He added: "It's a mistake when you just ask "yes" or "no", when you don't ask people how to improve the situation and to explain how to improve it".

The choice of venue was appropriate as the countries committed to closer defence and security co-operation between "Europe's two foremost military powers", Mrs May said.
