Despite having nothing to do with the just-concluded French elections, PSG stars Kylian Mbappe’s name was found on a ballot for French presidential election.
French publication L’Est Républicain reports that the 23-year-old’s name was on a ballot for the second round of the French presidential election in his small village of Tallenay. The report added that the Ligue 1 champions’ top-scorers fans got 10 of the 348 voters registered there.
The ballot papers were invalid, given that the run-off was pitting incumbent president Emmanuel Macron against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. Macron won the election overall and the second term in office, with 58.5% of votes cast in his favor.
