PARIS (Reuters) - Bob Iger, the chief executive of Walt Disney (DIS.N), declined to make any comment to reporters on Tuesday regarding Comcast’s (CMCSA.O) $31 billion bid for Sky SKYB.L.

Iger was in Paris on a business trip and was meeting French President Emmanuel Macron.

Comcast is challenging Rupert Murdoch’s Fox and Iger’s Walt Disney for Sky, seen as a European pay-TV jewel.
