The Paris Saint-Germain youngster went down under a challenge from compatriot Adil Rami which forced him to leave Les Bleus' open training session early with pain in his left ankle.

Mbappe also issued another positive fitness update on Rami's Instagram, telling the defender in the treatment room that he was feeling OK.

"I am doing fine, it was just a knock, so nothing serious but thank you for your messages", he wrote via his official Twitter account while urging fans to "lay off my friend Adil Rami as it was not malicious".

Mbappe, who has been linked with Manchester City and Manchester United this summer, is expected to play a starring role for France in Russian Federation this summer.
