A pair of cleats owned by Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will be displayed beside statues of the ancient pharaohs in the Egyptian collection at the British Museum in London, following the player's incredible performance in the English Premier League this season.

The Egypt worldwide has impressed this season, winning the Premier League golden boot with a record 32 goals.

Salah has also attained national-treasure status in Egypt after his late penalty in a 2-1 win over DR Congo secured his country's qualification to this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. The X17 Deadly Strike boots now sit alongside objects from ancient Egypt.

Salah's boots have now earned pride of place alongside centuries-old treasures in the museum's Egypt collection.

But not even Salah's biggest fans could've expected his boots to be given such reverence in the British Museum, where they'll be displayed alongside ancient Egyptian sandals in a gallery near its mummies.

"The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the United Kingdom, with a truly global impact".

He added: "Displayed amidst the statues of ancient pharaohs, we now show the boots with which Mo Salah won the Golden Boot for Liverpool".

The Reds Champions League final match against Los Blancos could be a determining factor if the former Chelsea striker would make a move to the Spanish capital.
