Mbappe’s name on a ballot for French presidential election

Despite having nothing to do with the just-concluded French elections, Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe’s name was found on a ballot for the French presidential election.

French magazine L’Est Républicain reported that the 23-year-old’s name was on a ballot paper for the second round of the French presidential election in his small village of Tallinn. The report added that fans of the French Ligue 1 champions league (1) got 10 out of the 348 registered voters there.

The ballot papers were invalid, given that the run-off was pitting incumbent President Emmanuel Macron against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. Macron won the general election and his second term in office, with 58.5% of the vote cast in his favour.

This news sparked excitement among Paris Saint-Germain fans, who have taken to Twitter to ‘mbappe for president’ even though the player’s future remains uncertain.

His deal with the French giants expires in June and it has been widely reported that Real Madrid are interested in grabbing the player even though PSG have made a new offer that could make him the best footballer in the world.
