Mbappe's hat-trick included the fastest goal ever in the history of the Ligue, as it took the Frenchman just eight seconds to find the back of the net.

The 23-year-old had the ball courtesy of Lionel Messi's majestic pass over the top of the Lille defence, allowing Mbappe to lob keeper Leo Jardim.

The ex-Monaco ace went on to add to his tally in the 66th and 87th minute, with Messi, Achraf Hakimi, and Neymar also getting their names on the scoresheet.

Reacting to his impressive performance, Mbappe shared a photo of him celebrating one of the goals on Instagram, which he captioned:

"One fine Sunday evening."

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that the only piece of football news emanating from France's top-flight league this week is the power battle at Paris Saint-Germain.

Football coaches at the club have always had to deal with ego issues of the numerous superstars at the club's disposal, and recently appointed manager, Christophe Galtier, is no different.

Galtier is faced with the daunting prospect of reigning in and restoring order in the dressing room if recent reports are anything to go by.
