The victory of 39-year-old Emmanuel Macron in the recent French presidential election has brought someone new, and very young, to the table of world leaders.

So when the next annual summit of G-20 world leaders takes place two months from now (July 7-8) in Hamburg, Germany, how will Macron compare in age to the other world leaders present?

Here's a chart looking at the age of present G-20 world leaders:

We see that Macron is the youngest in the group with the only other G-20 leader under 50 being Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada.

The oldest G-20 leader at present is King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia at 81 while India's own leader Prime Minister Narendra Modi is 66 years old right now.
