Neymar gave a hug and his jersey to a young fan who entered the field in tears as the PSG star was subbed out of the game in the 91st minute.
An own goal from Adrien Rabiot spurred PSG to life as Angel Di Maria, Thomas Meunier and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting all score to down Stade Rennes.
Ligue 1: Maxim Choupo-Moting (83′) Stade Rennes 1-3 PSG
Ligue 1: Thomas Meunier (61′) Stade Rennes 1-2 PSG
Ligue 1: Angel Di Maria (45′) Stade Rennes 1-1 PSG

He may have sat out PSG’s Ligue 1 clash with Rennes due to suspension, but the weekend wasn’t a total bust for Kylian Mbappe.

Indeed, the PSG striker took delivery of a very special gift from none other than Pele — a man who undeniably qualifies as royalty in football circles.

The 19-year-old striker displayed his present on social media, proudly holding the signed Santos jersey aloft with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

The hand-written message on the shirt reads: “For Mbappe, from your friend, Pele.”

“Thanks for this amazing gift, King,” the PSG prodigy said in return.

Mbappe is serving a three-match domestic ban after being shown the first red card of his career against Nimes earlier this month, but is due to return to action after PSG’s midweek game against Reims on 26 September.
