Paris Saint-Germain have got people talking after their appearance at the La Liga Promises tournament in Tenerife, even though they were knocked out in the group stage.

The club reportedly had to provide evidence that one of their players, Bitshiabu El Chadaille, is 12 years old due to his remarkable height and size.

The defender towers over his team-mates in the PSG squad picture taken from the competition.

And another picture - of an Atletico Madrid player grappling with him at a corner with the thankless task of trying to mark him - has gone viral.


El Chadaille joined PSG in April from Saint-Denis Union Sport and is highly regarded in the youth setup of the French champions.

But despite his talent and obvious physical advantages, El Chadaille was unable to help his side to victory.

Atletico defeated PSG 3-2 to reach the quarter-final of the tournament, which was eventually won by Barcelona.

They defeated Valencia 1-0 in the final to win the competition for the third consecutive year - their sixth triumph in seven seasons.

The tournament itself has been running for 22 years and is held around Christmas each year in Spain, with teams from across Europe competing.
