A woman has gained a whopping 100,000 followers after Kylian Mbappe looked at her in a now viral video.

For those unaware, Mbappe is one of the best soccer players on the planet, and looks set to join Real Madrid in the near future.

The French international has spent the last six years at Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 162 goals in the process.

Well, the soccer star has been away from the sport this week as he attended the famous Cannes Film Festival.

Alongside his PSG teammate Ousmane Dembele, Mbappe sat down at the lavish La Guerite restaurant.

Mbappe was deep in conversation with Dembele when he was stunned into his silence by a woman who approached his table waving a France flag.

Well, that woman, an influencer called Lea, has been identified on Instagram and has seen a healthy boost to her followers.

Before she appeared in the Mbappe video, the influencer was sat at around 2,000 Instagram followers, well, now she has 118,000 fans at the time of writing.

And if you head to the comments section of some of Lea's posts you'll notice the Mbappe fans are everywhere.

The Mbappe effect is certainly in play here - showing what a true soccer icon he is.

The soccer star announced earlier this month he would be leaving PSG at the end of his contract this summer.

And while it has not been confirmed just yet, it's widely expected he will heading to Spain and in particular, Real Madrid.

Announcing his departure, the 25-year-old said: "I’ve always said that I would speak with you when the time comes.

"It's my last year at Paris St-Germain. I will not extend and the adventure will come to an end in a few weeks."

He added: "It's a lot of emotions, many years where I had the chance and the great honour to be a member of the biggest French club, one of the best in the world.

"It allowed me to arrive here, to have my first experience in a club with a lot of pressure, to grow as a player of course, by being alongside some of the best in history, some of the greatest champions.

"It's hard and I never thought it would be this difficult to announce that. But I think I needed this, a new challenge, after seven years."
