He was joined by Prime Minister Manuel Valls and other state representatives at the Stade de France where the French president unveiled a plaque in memory of Manuel Dias, the first victim of that bloody November night.
Pulling up outside the main entrance of the Stade de France, Manuel Dias dropped off a group of spectators running late to watch France play Germany in an international football friendly.
Seconds later a suicide bomber detonated his device.
The 63-year-old died as a result.
At least 130 more died that night, with several hundred more wounded, as attackers targeted six locations across the French capital.
The attacks sparked a massive police crackdown across Europe, particularly in Brussels, where many of the suspects had lived or planned the attacks.
