Apparently teenage French forward Kylian Mbappe looks like one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

You might not have realized that. You might not even know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are. But some of Mbappe’s PSG teammates do. They’ve realized. And they’ve been teasing Mbappe about it ever since they did.

But two fans took the comparison to a new, hilarious level on Saturday. During PSG’s 4-1 win over Rennes, two fans dressed up as the Ninja Turtles ran onto the field after an Edinson Cavani goal. One ran straight to Mbappe, and before security could intervene, fan and player hugged it out:


Dani Alves clearly enjoyed their presence. He appeared to pretend to pull an imaginary weapon from behind his back, like one of the Ninja Turtles would.

Mbappe seemed to have a bit of a laugh about it, too. Hopefully he’s embraced the comparisons to the cartoon-turned-movie characters.

So, your turn to decide: Are Mbappe’s PSG teammates right? Is there any resemblance here? They specifically think he looks like Donatello, the one in purple on the right:
