Mohamed Salah showed his class off the field as he visited a young fan who got injured while chasing after his car as he was leaving training.
Excited Louis Fowler, 11, was trying to get the Egyptian superstar’s attention, but wound up running face first into a lamppost.

The collision caused him to break his nose and a concerned Salah turned his car around to check on the young fan, before posing for pictures with Louis and his brother.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the starstruck youngster joked that he had been told off by the Liverpool forward.

“I had a really bloody nose, someone took me home back to my front garden and I just saw Salah‘s car by our house,” Louis said.
“I was still spaced out so I didn’t really know what was happening, but he got out of his car and posed for a picture.”
Louis’ damaged nose was re-set at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and when asked if he had been told off by Mr Salah, he replied: “Yeah, sort of.”
The family live close to Liverpool’s Melwood training base and had spent all summer trying to see their heroes, according to stepfather Joe Cooper.
“He’s such a superstar, I was just so shocked. It was really congested outside the training ground, so for him to turn his car round and check is just such a nice gesture,” he said to the Echo in an earlier interview.
Salah was on target as Liverpool began their Premier League season with a comfortable 4-1 win over Norwich City on Friday.
