This time, it is only Leon who “ordered” Thomas Peskett to give him a new picture. On April 23, a week after take-off, the Lyon Metropolis publicity organization republished the 2017 photo with the message: “Thomas Peskett, will we have a chance to get another great photo?” A call relayed by Progress.
