Kylian Mbappé receives 10 votes in French presidential election

L’Est Républicain report that the second round of the French presidential election this Sunday saw 10 votes cast in favour of Paris Saint-Germain striker, in the eastern village of Tallenay.

The Ligue 1 top scorer’s supporters – 10 of the 348 voters registered there – had printed out pre-prepared ballot papers and placed them in their envelope.

The ballot papers were nevertheless invalid, given that the run-off was pitting incumbent president Emmanuel Macron against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. The latter won the election overall, and with that a second term in office, with 58.5% of votes cast in his favour.
