PSG's Kylian Mbappe receives special gift from Pele
He may have sat out PSG's Ligue 1 clash with Rennes due to suspension, but the weekend wasn't a total bust for Kylian Mbappe.
Indeed, the PSG striker took delivery of a very special gift from none other than Pele -- a man who undeniably qualifies as royalty in football circles.
The 19-year-old striker displayed his present on social media, proudly holding the signed Santos jersey aloft with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
The hand-written message on the shirt reads: "For Mbappe, from your friend, Pele."
"Thanks for this amazing gift, King," the PSG prodigy said in return.
Mbappe is serving a three-match domestic ban after being shown the first red card of his career against Nimes earlier this month, but is due to return to action after PSG's midweek game against Reims on 26 September.
