Emotional Kylian Mbappe reveals boy, 8, who he dedicated goal to has died after losing cancer battle

KYLIAN MBAPPE has paid tribute to eight-year-old PSG fan Lucas, after he tragically passed away following his battle with cancer.

The French World Cup winner recently dedicated his goal against Nimes to the youngster, who he had previously visited in hospital.

And the devastated star has now taken to social media following Lucas' sad passing.

He wrote: "It is with great emotion that I inform you that Lucas has gone to join the stars.

“Very difficult to find the words but it is necessary to pay homage to this boy filled with love, sympathy and above all, courage, who taught me so much and with whom I nurtured a strong bond.

“I will try to make you proud because you are the real hero.

“You who deserve all this praise for having fought your disease for more than ten months without ever complaining.

“I am extremely proud to have been able to be your friend until your last breaths and believe I will be forever.

“May God grant you the way to Heaven my little angel.

“I love you. Kylian.”

Mbappe, 21, also posted pictures of the duo together.

And in one, the wide-eyed Lucas can be seen imitating his hero's trademark arms-crossed celebration.

Having revealed an undershirt reading 'Courage Lucas, I’m with you.' following his opener against Nimes, Mbappe also offered kind words to French broadcaster Telefoot at half-time of last Friday's match.

He said: "I would like to make a little dedication to Lucas, a friend of mine. We are one of the privileged, some are not so lucky.”
