The youngest player to score in the World Cup final since Pelé, for the tournament-winning team, in his brief career to date Kylian Mbappé is breaking records at a rate matched by only the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and is fast becoming one of the biggest names in football.

But did you know that even at three years old, he would sit listening to the manager's talk before an AS Bondy match?

Or where his signature crossed-arm goal celebration came from and where he first performed it?

Or how he got his dressing room nickname 'Thirty-seven'?

Find out about all this and more in Luca Caioli and Cyril Collot's tirelessly researched biography of the game's latest superstar, featuring exclusive interviews with those who know him best. Includes the 2019/2020 season.
