Louis Fowler, 11, crashed into a lamppost and fell to the ground with blood coming out of his nose after he and his younger brother Isaac ran beside Salah's car on Saturday while waving at the Liverpool player, Sky News reported.

Having spotted the youngster in pain, Salah circled round to check on him before offering to pose for pictures.

@MoSalah thank you for coming back to check on my boys after Louis KO'd himself trying to get a wave! He loves you so much and the pain went away instantly when you came to give them a hug. A nose reset worth well worth it he said. You are a top man and a true gent! #EgyptianKing pic.twitter.com/wrmHc4vxB9

"Whilst [we were] ringing an ambulance we saw Mo driving into the close having spotted Louis and following back to the close to check they were both okay," Fowler's stepfather Joe Cooper told Sky News. "The kids were screaming with excitement as he got out of the car and Isaac went into hysterics and hugged him.

"Mo was very apologetic and caring and was really compassionate towards the boys and made them feel so much better."
