PARIS, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The documentary series of Paris Saint-Germain's Chinese footballer Wang Shuang draws huge attention online as its first three episodes available on the club's social media channels have registered over eight million video views in China, the Ligue 1 club revealed on Monday.

The series follows the daily life of the current AFC Women's Player of the Year in the French capital since her arrival at PSG last year.

"It's important for me to be able to give back to my fans in China and share with them my journey in Paris. They've supported me throughout my career and I always enjoy reading and hearing their messages of support. I'll continue to give my best on the pitch for both club and country," said Wang.

The documentary has been broadcast across multiple platforms in China, including Weibo, WeChat and Douyin. The first three episodes totaled over eight million video views across all platforms.

In the documentary series, Wang is filmed at various locations in the city of Paris, including the club's training ground and stadium. She also tastes local delicacies and visits famous landmarks, giving the viewers insights into one of the world's most renowned cities.

"Wang Shuang is a great ambassador for the club. She's an icon in her home country and that popularity has reflected a growing fan base and increased engagement across Asia," Sebastien Wasels, Paris Saint-Germain Managing Director Asia Pacific, pointed out.

Wang is the first Chinese player to sign for Paris Saint-Germain, and increasing attention on the club in China has been apparently felt. The club revealed that their social media accounts have grown over 650,000 followers in the past 12 months.
