KYLIAN MBAPPE is back in training with Paris Saint-Germain – just THREE DAYS after his World Cup final heartbreak.

The French mega star became only the second player ever to hit a hat-trick in the final of football’s biggest tournament on Sunday, following in the footsteps of England’s Sir Geoff Hurst.

He could play a part in PSG’s upcoming match against Strasbourg

But unlike Sir Geoff in 1966, poor Mbappe ended up on the losing side as Les Bleus were defeated on penalties to Lionel Messi’s Argentina, after the scores were tied at 3-3 following extra-time.

Mbappe’s treble saw him beat club team-mate Messi to the tournament’s Golden Boot – not that that was much consolation after losing the greatest final of all time.

It had been expected that Mbappe would take ten days of holiday following his World Cup exertions.

But the forward, who turned 24 on Tuesday, seems to have decided the best way to get over his agony is to get straight back to work.

He turned up at PSG’s Camp des Loges training ground on Wednesday morning ready to return to practice.

Asked how he was feeling as he entered the complex, the former Monaco man replied: “Better, better, better.”

PSG’s social media channels announced that Mbappe is expected to train with his team-mates on Tuesday.

The Ligue 1 leaders, who are unbeaten this season and have won all but four of their games in all competitions, host Strasbourg in the league on December 28.

World champion Messi, 35, is not expected to return to PSG until the New Year as he celebrates finally winning the only trophy to have eluded him during his glittering career – until now.

The Argentina skipper received a hero’s welcome when he returned to Buenos Aires on Tuesday.

He was then followed by thousands of adoring fans to his home town of Rosario.
