The trio were suddenly interrupted by a hostess waving the red, white and blue flag of the Netherlands.

The appearance of the young lady clearly surprised Mbappe, whose reaction to the situation has gone viral.

It has since transpired that the woman in question, who cannot be seen from the front of the original video, is Lea Tsatsas, a model, actress and hostess at the restaurant that Mbappe visited.

'A devastating beauty'

She lives on the Riviera and, according to ThisIsRiviera, regularly does photo and video shoots. One such shoot came last year, when she was in the rapper RK’s video for ‘Te Quiero’.

ThisIsRiviera says: “Lea is a fairly discreet girl and embodies the class and elegance of the Riviera. We therefore perfectly understand Kylian Mbappé's reaction, because her beauty is devastating...”

Tsatsas has benefited greatly from her chance encounter with Mbappe, with her Instagram following having grown from 700 followers to more than 91,000 in the space of a few hours.

Despite grabbing the attention of Mbappe, who was back in the capital on Monday for a farewell dinner with his PSG teammates at an Italian restaurant, there is no evidence to suggest that there is any longer-term relationship between the player and the model on the cards.
