Just when you think Kylian Mbappé can’t possibly get any better, he goes out and scored two goals in a win over Amiens SC and then embraced a kid who ran on the pitch towards the end of the match.

Christmas spirit at the Parc des Princes – kid runs onto the pitch with a pen & a book, asks Kylian Mbappé to sign it, the 21-year-old duly obliges. Refreshingly not looking for the usual selfie! (C+) pic.twitter.com/qsPnl6BmZo

In attendance, at the Parc des Princes were 240 kids from the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation and while it’s unclear whether the child who ran on the pitch was part of that group, a kid did make it past security.
Once on the pitch, the kid ran over to Mbappé who welcomed the kid into his arms and gave him a hug and a few words. Then, the kid gives Mbappé a copy of his book and the Frenchman gladly signs it while walking him over to the sideline.
It was a moment of pure class from the 21-year-old and I certainly got goosebumps watching it.
Paris Saint-Germain defeated Amiens 4-1 in the last match of 2019.
