Kylian Mbappe was 'serviced like an F1 car' by three men after scoring twice in 95 seconds

Kylian Mbappe was treated like royalty after keeping France's dream of winning the World Cup alive - with fans joking he received treatment 'like a Formula One car'.
Didier Deschamps' side were 2-0 down with 10 minutes remaining of the World Cup final on Sunday after goals from Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria in the first half.
France looked drained throughout, second-best to every ball. Deschamps even reacted by making two substitutions inside the opening 41 minutes.
The game looked to be petering out without much fuss. Step up, Kylian Mbappe.
France received a penalty after Nicolas Otamendi was judged to have hauled Randal Kolo Muani down in the box.
Mbappe stepped up to fire his effort past Emiliano Martinez to half the deficit. One minute later, he'd done the unthinkable.
Kingsley Coman dispossessed Messi in the France half before working the ball back up the pitch.
Marcus Thuram cushioned the ball down to Mbappe, with the Paris Saint-Germain superstar rifling a first-time effort past Martinez who found it too hot to handle.
It took the game to extra-time, which took a lot out of Mbappe. The 23-year-old stayed on the Lusail Stadium turf as three members of France's backroom staff made their way on.
Bruhhh there are 3 men literally servicing the thighs & legs of Mbappe like he was a Formula 1 car! Herh 🥶🥲 pic.twitter.com/oEAIhOua19— Ölele | Deep Throat Sauce🦅🎙🇬🇭 (@OleleSalvador) December 18, 2022
Mbappe's thighs were rubbed down vigorously as he looked up to the heavens, likely thinking about the insanity he pulled off 10 minutes prior.
Fans online have reacted to the footage and they think it's absolutely hilarious.
One person said: "When he's the reason you're getting paid I'd be doing this too."
Another tweeted: "This guy is already the king of football, loving life."
A third put: "Mbappe's legs are national treasures at this point."
While someone added: "Get the whole crew down there ASAP."
Argentina would retake the lead in extra-time through Messi's second of the game. France then pegged them back for a second time through Mbappe's second penalty of the game.
Gonzalo Montiel handled Mbappe's long-range effort, which let the forward convert his second spot kick of the game.
It means Mbappe is the first player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final since Sir Geoff Hurst for England in 1966. No wonder he's getting the VIP treatment, two days before his 24th birthday.
For Mbappe, it ended up all for naught however as Argentina ran out 4-2 winners on penalties to clinch their first World Cup since 1986.
