Paris Saint Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has taken to social media to show off his autographed Santos jersey by Brazil legend Pele according to SunSport.
The 19-year-old striker helped France win their second FIFA World Cup this summer in Russia as he became the second teenager to score twice in the tournament since Pele's double against Sweden in 1958.
He (Mbappe) scored in Les Blues 4-2 win over Croatia on July 15 and was crowned the best young player at the tournament.
After the tournament, Pele congratulated the youngster on social media saying that: "Congratulations @KMbappe. 2 goals in a World Cup so young puts you in great company!"
Just as if that wasn't enough, the 77-year-old further strengthen his affiliation with the French star by giving him a signed Santos shirt.

The youngster has shown no signs that his blistering form during the World Cup will slow down anytime soon after an impressive start to the season.
He has scored four times in just two league starts and also opened his Champions League account in the defeat at Liverpool.
The 19-year-old striker was on fire for France on Saturday as they defeated Argentina 4-3 to reach the quarterfinal stage at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
His two goals within four minutes proved to be very important as they survived the Argentine scare in the later minutes of the game.
