As he has always done when he plays for France, Kylian Mbappe will donate money earned from featuring in the 2018 World Cup tournament in Russia to a sports charity that work with disabled and hospitalised children, Premiers de Cordee.

According to Sports Illustrated, the 19-year-old was paid £17,000 per game, and pocketed £265,000 for being part of the team who won the tournament.

Speaking to Le Parisien, Premier de Cordee charity general manager, Sebastian Ruffin said: “Kylian, he’s a great person.

“When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure.

“He has a very good [relationship] with children, he always finds the right [words] to encourage them.

“I sometimes even feel that [he] takes more pleasure to play with the kids than the kids themselves.”

Mbappe, who joined PSG for a fee of around £166m from Monaco after a season-long loan, was named Young Player of the World Cup.

Mbappe became the first teenager to score in a World Cup final since Pele in 1958.
