Sun man Joe Hadden poses in England kit in front of Kylian Mbappe’s old apartment block in Paris

Sun man and agent provocateur Joe Hadden went up the Eiffel Tower to unfurl the flag, prompting furious heckles from onlookers down below.

And later on Joe posed up outside Kylian Mbappe’s old apartment block in an England kit.

A giant mural of the star forward, 23, is plastered across the side of the building in the Parisian suburb of Bondy.

Motorists in the neighbourhood were full of fighting spirit – beeping their horns and shouting “Allez La France”.

Idris Mohamed, 22, who works at Harry’s Cafe across the road from the mural, said: “Mbappe is a hero round here. The Sun’s stunt only makes us want to win even more.”
