Mbappe, 19, became the first teenager to score more than once in a game in Russia since Pele's double against Sweden in 1958.

His goal in the final also earned him an award for the best young player at the tournament.

Pele congratulated Mbappe during the tournament with the comment: "Congratulations @KMbappe. 2 goals in a World Cup so young puts you in great company!"

And now the 77-year-old has further endeared himself to the Paris Saint-Germain star by giving him a signed Santos shirt.

Pele spent almost his entire career with the Brazilian side, scoring 619 times in 638 appearances.

Mbappe proudly took to social media to show off the shirt, alongside the caption: "Thanks for this amazing gift, King @Pele."

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.
