Paris St-Germain 4-1 Amiens: Kylian Mbappe comforts young pitch invader

Kylian Mbappe helped diffuse the situation with stewards running after the young child

Kylian Mbappe hugged a child who ran on to the pitch and signed an autograph in the closing stages of Paris St-Germain's win over Amiens.

As the game entered injury time, a young boy ran on to the pitch with stewards chasing after him.

But Mbappe - who had scored two goals - walked off the Parc des Princes field with the crying boy and signed a book he produced from his coat.

Neymar and Mauro Icardi also scored in the comfortable PSG win.

Mbappe, who turned 21 on Friday, ran on to Neymar's through ball to clip the ball over goalkeeper Regis Gurtner and score for his seventh game in a row.

Neymar smashed home a loose ball from six yards out to score in his fifth consecutive PSG match - and Mbappe got his second with a first-time strike.

Stiven Mendoza scored a consolation before Icardi's late strike.

France international Mbappe finishes 2019 with 31 Ligue 1 goals in 29 games.

Champions PSG go into Christmas seven points clear of second-placed Marseille, who beat Nimes 3-1.
