Mbappe to give away $350,00

PARIS

Jul 19, 2018-

Teenage World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe is giving his bonus to an association that puts sports in the lives of hospitalised children. The head of Premiers de Cordee (First in Line), Sebastien Ruffin, says two weeks before France clinched the World Cup he was informed that Mbappe would give the group his bonus if the team qualified for the quarter-finals. French Football Federation chief Noel Le Graet confirmed in Sunday’s Journal du Dimanche that other associations also would benefit from the France forward’s largesse-”about 300,000 euros ($350,000).” (AP)
