Kylian Mbappe has become a new global ambassador for Dior.

The 22-year-old soccer star is set to represent the French house’s men’s fashion lines, and its Sauvage fragrance, according to WWD.com.

The World Cup-winning star is currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain, who announced a two-season collaboration with Dior earlier this year.

Mbappe has previously been spotted in various Dior designs and despite his age, he has already established himself as one of the world's most recognisable athletes.

The France international - who scored in the 2018 World Cup Final against Croatia - has a lucrative sponsorship agreement with Nike, and he's now following in the footsteps of people like Anna-Taylor Joy, Yara Shahidi, Nina Dobrev and Iris Law by becoming a brand ambassador for Dior.

In September, meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain and Dior announced their two-season partnership.

The announcement was accompanied by a video clip that featured some of the team's biggest stars, including Brazilian goalscorer Neymar and Spanish legend Sergio Ramos, as they were fitted in their tailor-made suits.

Dior said at the time: "The formal outfit pairs a cashmere coat, a jacket, a shirt and pants, and a pair of black leather Dior timeless captoe derbies. The pieces are enhanced by other subtle details, reflecting Dior’s savoir-faire excellence."

The partnership was announced shortly after the French club confirmed the signing of record-breaking star Lionel Messi.

The 34-year-old Argentine is widely considered to be one of the greatest soccer players of all time, and his transfer has also helped to raise the profile of the team.
