When record breaking Kylian Mbappe takes to the pitch, he always has others in mind...
France’s wonderboy, Kylian Mbappe, has captured the headlines this week for being the youngest ever French player to score in the World Cup.
The forward, who regularly plays for Paris Saint Germain, at the tender age of 19 helped his nation’s side go through to the quarter-finals to be played this Friday against Uruguay. While this is no doubt an impressive feat, what Mbappe has been doing off the pitch is equally, well, we think more so, impressive.
It came to light in a recent article in L’Equipe that the soccer player will be giving any bonuses earned from his matches in the World Cup to a charity close to his heart: the Premiers de Cordée, an association that helps children with disabilities have access to sport. If France does win the coveted cup then this could reach the sizeable sum of around $350,000 in total.
