The footwear, belonging to the Gharbia-born Liverpool FC striker - and recent victor of the Premier League's Golden Boot award - will be displayed alongside ancient Egyptian sandals, and various other priceless objects in Room 61 of the British Museum, from next week.

Liverpool's "Egyptian King" has now been recognised by the British Museum.

The Adidas X17 Deadly Strike boots of Salah's have been given to the British Museum after the Egyptian won the Premier League's Golden Boot.

The pair of boots will be on display among the biggest collection of Egyptian objects outside of Egypt, including the Rosetta Stone, an ancient decree issued during the Ptolemaic dynasty in 196BC.

Salah also played a key role in Egypt's qualification for the World Cup and is set to feature for them in Russian Federation this summer.

Neal Spencer, the museum's keeper of ancient Egypt and Sudan, said in a statement: "This acquisition brings the British Museum's world-famous Egyptian collection right up to date".

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

Liverpool is set to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26 in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Salah scored 32 Premier League goals in the 2017/18 season, two more than Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane.

Salah has scored 33 goals in 57 appearances for his country including a crucial double in the win that clinched Egypt's spot in the World Cup.
