Paris (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande will present three Americans and a Briton with the country's top Legion d'Honneur medal on Monday in recognition of their bravery in stopping a gunman on a packed train, an Elysee source said.

A French citizen who also tackled the suspected jihadist, but wishes to remain anonymous, is to receive the honour at a later date, as will a Franco-American passenger recovering from being shot during the attack, the source told AFP.

The Legion d'Honneur, France's highest accolade, was created by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 and is awarded in recognition of both civil and military achievements.

The train passengers are to be awarded the Chevalier de l'ordre national de la Legion d'Honneur, or Knight of the national Order of the Legion of Honour.

Well done, gentlemen.
