London, Sept 3 (ANI): Former British PM Tony Blair has revealed how he had a passionate affair with a woman in France when he was young.

The confession is in the French edition of his autobiography.

Blair spent several months as a student working in a French bar. One day, I fell in love with a Frenchwoman. She was passionate. I was a little . . . English. 'Stop thinking and learn to have pleasure', she would tell me," the Sun quoted him as saying.

"When I was Prime Minister, I had political differences with France, but they never interfered with my love for the country.

Blair also admitted that he wanted to become the first EU President last year.

"I'm basically a public service guy. I would have taken the European job if they had offered it to me last year.

Meanwhile in a US TV interview to promote his book, A Journey, Blair described Princess Diana as an "extraordinary, engaging, beautiful, amazing, iconic figure".

"She was a kind of meteor coming into what had been a fairly well-disciplined, well-ordered ecosystem," he said.

Blair's 24-pound memoirs have broken UK sales records after a 'stupendous' first day in shops, booksellers said. (ANI)
