I got a speed fine when driving in France, do I have to pay it?

I have received a speeding fine for doing 76kph in a 70kmh whilst in France from amendes.gouv.fr. Is this a genuine fine and, as a British citizen, do I have to pay the fine?

Depends on the final details of Brexit (if and when?), but currently, they can pursue you for the penalty via UK courts if they want to.
