CAPE TOWN - Paris Saint Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, is set to donate millions to charity after winning the World Cup with France.
Mbappe pledged to donate his match salary to a French charity called Premiers de Cordee, which helps disabled children by hosting sporting activities, at the start of the tournament.
However, the size of the donation has more than doubled as a result of France’s victory over Croatia in Sunday’s final.
The 19-year-old has reportedly earned $29 000 for each of the seven games he played in Russia, which would amount to $203 000 alone.
But Mbappe and his teammates will also earn $350 000 each as a bonus for winning the tournament, and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation claims the striker will include his bonus winnings in the donation.
