I met Kylian Mbappe and his parents last night in Paris at @Hublot event. We talked goals, World Cups and watches. Great company! /Estive com @KMbappe e seus pais ontem à noite, durante um evento da @Hublot em Paris. Falamos sobre gols, Copas do Mundo e relógios. Grande encontro! pic.twitter.com/U63hLWy0mV— Pelé (@Pele) April 3, 2019
Pelé and PSG striker Mbappé earlier participated in a publicity event promoting a brand of watch. The event was rescheduled from last Autumn when the Brazilian's ill health at the time forced the marketing event to be re-scheduled.
