It has now been revealed that the 19-year-old will hand over money earned from featuring out in Russia to a sports charity that work with disabled and hospitalised children, Premiers de Cordee.

Mbappe, who joined PSG for a fee of around £166m from Monaco after a season-long loan, was one of the French success stories from this World Cup.
Its not so much that a star was born in the World Cup – as Mbappe was already heralded, but he is clearly destined for great things
The teenage striker, who completed a £166m move to PSG this summer, is one of the most promising players in world football
He ended up with four goals from the tournament, and was named as best young player.
Speaking to Le Parisien, Mbappe’s generosity came as no surprise to Premier de Cordee charity general manager Sebastian Ruffin.

“He has a very good [relationship] with children, he alway 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 became the first teenager to score in a World Cu final since Pele in 1958.
The French, 19, starlet continued his superb tournament i Russia as his side beat Croatia to lift football’s greatest trophy.
Mbappe is only the third teen to even play in the World Cup showpiece – after Pele and Italian legend Guiseppe Bergomi in 1982.
And his three goals on route to Moscow played a huge rol in the French making the final.
Brazil icon Pele was just 17 when he scored twice in a 5-2 win over Sweden in 1958 – the start of an incredible international career.
After watching Mbappe’s acheivement, he tweeted: “Only the second teenager to have scored a goal in a # WorldCupFinal ! Welcome to the club, @ KMbappe – it’s great to have some company!”
