The Paris Saint-Germain’s forward, Kylian Mbappe’s, remarkable rise to the top of the global game has now seen him crowned the French Player of the Year for the first time.
After bursting onto the scene as a precociously-gifted teenager at Monaco, a big-money transfer had taken him to Parc des Princes.
Another Ligue 1 title triumph was enjoyed in 2017-18, as PSG swept the board in terms of domestic honours.
Mbappe then headed to Russia with his country and a shot at World Cup glory.
He helped Les Bleus to go all the way, with a fine individual effort netted in a 4-2 final triumph over Croatia.
His efforts were recognized with the Young Player Award, and his game has continued to go from strength to strength.
Mbappe has hit 16 goals in 19 appearances for PSG this season, as they continue to chase down more trophies at home and abroad.
Alongside those heroics, he has also become the inaugural winner of the Kopa Trophy – the prize bestowed upon the finest under-21 player on the planet.
