French footballer Kylian Mbappe has reportedly donated £27,000 to a fundraising page set up by the family of the missing pilot, David Ibbotson.

Ibbotson was flying the plane carrying Cardiff City’s Emiliano Sala from Nantes to the UK when it crashed over the English Channel on January 21.

The footballer’s body was recovered from the wreckage but Mr Ibbotson’s body has not been found. And the search was called off due to lack of fund and bad weather conditions.

Ibbotson’s family, on Friday, opened a fundraising page in a bid to resume the search.

It was to the page that Mbappe donated £27,000.

Mbappe, whose full name is Kylian Mbappe Lottin, donated under the name Elie Lottin, reports Standard UK.

He previously donated £26,267 for the private search for Sala.
