The race for the World Cup Golden Boot went right down to the wire, but in the end it was Kylian Mbappe who claimed the prestigious award in Qatar.
The forward eventually sealed the feat in the grand finale between Argentina and France, scoring a dramatic hat-trick with the two sides settled after 120 minutes of action.
Mbappe finished the tournament with eight goals and two assists, in turn seeing off competition from Lionel Messi, Olivier Giroud and Julian Alvarez.
He was level on goals with Mbappe – but with a greater number of assists to his name, it was the Argentinian wizard who took pole position.
Just a minute later, he volleyed home an exquisite second to draw France level and move ahead of Messi in the Golden Boot race.
A drama-filled final continued to twist and turn, as France were awarded a penalty with just two minutes remaining.
Messi had beforehand made history by becoming the first player ever to score in every round of a World Cup, but it was Mbappe who claimed the Golden Boot.
And though it was Mbappe, and not Messi, who won the Golden Boot, it was the Argentinian who won in the end as they claimed victory after penalties.
