Paris Saint-Germain’s cheeky gift for ‘Ninja Turtle’ Kylian Mbappe

As part of a running joke inside the PSG dressing room, Kylian Mbappe was presented with a special gift recently, courtesy of teammate Thiago Silva.

Presented in a Dior box, the £166 million striker eagerly unwrapped the parcel only to find, buried beneath layers of crepe paper, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mask.

Cue laughter.

Since arriving at the Parisian club, Mbappe has been nicknamed "Donatello" by his buddies, who routinely insist that the young forward bears a likeness to the Ninja Turtle.

Incidentally, the high-pitched hooting you hear in the background is the unmistakable cackle of defender Presnel Kimpembe, who is usually involved whenever Mbappe gets teased about his turtle face.

What larks.
