Kylian Mbappe has shared a picture of a signed Santos jersey from none other than Brazil icon Pele

The 19-year-old striker became the first teenager to score more than once at a World Cup since Pele himself back in Brazil’s final over Sweden in 1958.

“Thanks for this amazing gift, King,” Mbappe wrote on Twitter.
