NGolo Kante was the epitome of modesty as Frances players chanted and sung his name after their World Cup victory.
The Chelsea midfielder was a key part of Frances midfield throughout the tournament and has been credited with helping bring the best out of Paul Pogba.
And after Frances 4-2 victory over Croatia in Sundays final, Kantes teammates paid tribute to him during their celebrations.
Kante is well known for his quiet and reserved personality off the pitch.
And the 27-year-old remained humble as Frances players sung his name in the dressing room and on the coach back to the team hotel.
Frances players were singing: NGolo Kante, NGolo Kante, hes short, hes beautiful, hes the one that stopped Leo Messi, NGolo Kante.
And Kantes response was one of shyness as Frances players belted out the song during the journey from the stadium.

Kantes performance in the final was below his usual standards and the Chelsea midfielder was substituted in the 55th minute.
Kante had picked up a yellow card in the first half and Didier Deschamps took the decision to bring on Steven NZonzi to see out Frances win.
