The Manchester United midfielder was among the group of French players awarded with the Legion of Honour following their triumph in Russia last summer.
It is the highest French order of merit for military and civil awards, with each player receiving the accolade.
Joining Pogba were the likes of Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris, PSG star Kylian Mbappe, Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann and Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final to win the tournament last year and earn their second Jules Rimet trophy.
Often portrayed as a wild character due to his elaborate hairstyles and dance moves, Pogba was a hero among the French squad after scoring the third goal in the match.
However Mr Macron stated Pogba was “without doubt the calmest member of the team” at the ceremony at the Elysee Palace in France’s capital.
Speculation has been surrounding the 26-year-old since then, with Pogba consistently linked with a move away from his club side.
Real Madrid are rumoured to be keen on sealing a transfer, with France legend and Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane previously admitting his admiration for the player.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to keep hold of his star man however, and is said to be considering offering him the club captaincy to persuade him to stay.
One man who has not been impressed with Pogba though, is former Argentina striker Diego Maradona.
The World-Cup winner criticised Pogba and stated he “doesn’t work hard enough”, in an open attack on Man Utd.
Maradona added that he should replace Solskjaer in the Old Trafford hot seat, in order to rescue the club from their current struggles.
