On July 13, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the Indian diaspora in Paris. He reminisced on his four-decade relationship with France. PM Modi brought up the growing number of foreign athletes in India during his speech, emphasising, in particular, the rise in support for French national team captain Kylian Mbappe among Indian football fans. He mentioned how Mbappe is even more well-known and admired in India than he is in his own country.

“French football player Kylian Mbappe is superhit among the youth in India. Mbappe is probably known to more people in India than in France,” PM Modi was quoted as saying per ANI. The video of PM Modi’s statement on Kylian Mbappe has gone viral in no time and the Indian football fans have reacted plentifully to the same. Notably, Kylian Mbappe has been in the headlines constantly over the last month because of his contract situation in Paris. He will not extend his contract as PSG which means he will be a free agent at the end of the season.
