Kylian Mbappe raced to the aid of a France fan after accidentally hitting him with a wayward shot before their World Cup semi-final with Morocco.

The Paris Saint-Germain star was testing his shooting boots during the warm-up ahead of the crunch clash at the Al Bayt Stadium.

But one of his attempts to get his range resulted in him booting the ball square in the face of a Les Bleus fan, The Sun reports.

The unlucky fan was badly dazed by the powerful strike and grabbed his nose to see if it had been bloodied.

Fox Sports’ Jenny Taft tweeted: “Spoke to the French fan, he suffered a bloody nose and told me if France wins it will all be worth it! (He is also hoping Mbappé will give him his jersey after the match).”

It prompted mega star Mbappe to come and check on his condition.

Mbappe, 24, consoled the fan by grabbing his arm in an apologetic manner and seemed to profusely offer his apologies.

Footy fans were quick to comment on the unfortunate incident, with one saying: “Just how hard did that ball hit him?”

Another said: “That’s love.”

Another remarked: “Mbappe has just given some poor bloke a journeyman boxers career worth of brain trauma.”

One chimed in: “Hold up did any medical professionals check on him?”

Not long after Mbappe’s apology, the defending World Cup champions raced into an early lead.

Goals from Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani sealed a 2-0 win to send France into the World Cup final against Argentina.
