Kylian Mbappe shows off his signed Pele shirt

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.

Since then comparisons have been made between Mbappe and Pele, which the Paris Saint-Germain star has found to be “flattering”.

Now the young superstar has shared a picture of himself holding a signed Santos shirt from Pele with the Paris’ Eiffel Tower in the background.

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

Keylor Navas holds no grudges over Real Madrid exit

Keylor Navas took no pleasure in helping Paris Saint-Germain thrash his old club Real Madrid, and explained the reason why he left Spain.

“You’re welcome, Kylian Mbappe. I think you have something special. I only have two pieces of advice – always stay humble and keep working hard. I am sure you will,” Pele replied.
