Error connecting to MySQL 8.0 with ODBC 5.3 (Excel)

After upgrading MySQL to 8.0 on Windows 64bit, I cannot connect through ODBC MySQL Unicode Driver 5.3.10 (32bit) from Excel 2016 (32 bit).

I get this error:
[MySQL][ODBC 5.3(w) Driver][mysqld 8.0.11]Source character set not supported yb client.

The connection string I'm constructing is:
Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver};Server=localhost;Port=3306;Database=dbname;Uid=myusername;Pwd=mypwd;OPTION=16427;

The connection is opened OK, but the error is trapped when accessing the DB for recordset.

(The DB is OK, as I can access it from the Workbench and from another Python application and apply SQL statements).

Please help :)
