He added: "And you should understand that you can not, by definition, have the full access to the single market if you don't tick the box".

On the issue of the ongoing negotiations for the United Kingdom to leave the EU, he said a bespoke Brexit deal would be possible but only if it were "consistent" with the European Union's single market.

"You always take a risk when you have such a referendum, just yes or no in a very complicated context", Mr Macron told BBC One's The Andrew Marr show.

He added: "As soon as you decide not to join the [European Union's] preconditions, it's not a full access - it's something perhaps between full access and a trade agreement".

"What is important is to not make people believe that it is possible to [have your cat and eat it]".

That means Britain must continue to contribute to the European Union budget and accept free movement of people, goods, services and capital if it wants to maintain full access to the single market.

City firms are concerned about new trade barriers, including the loss of so-called "passporting" rights, that allow them to operate throughout the European Union from headquarters in London.

He said: "I do respect this vote, I do regret this vote, and I would love to welcome you again. But for sure, if there is no change in terms of full access to the financial single market it doesn't make sense for the other".
