Mbappe, who helped France win the 2018 World Cup title in Russia, has earlier admitted that he gives money to charity because he sees the need to help people.

''A lot of people are suffering, a lot of people have diseases. For people like us, giving a helping hand to people is not a big thing,'' the 21-year-old said.

This is not the first time Mbappe would commit his heavy earnings to charity as he donated all his World Cup winnings to a children's charity as well.

The PSG star also followed the path of his mentor Cristiano Ronaldo when he donated to help fund a private search for Emiliano Sala, whose plane crashed in the sea.
