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.

This year, the 25-year-old forward Salah played the best season ever played by an Egyptian, scoring 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions this season.

"We've made an exciting new acquisition!" the museum posted on Twitter.

Salah has risen to the ranks of global fame this year, following a record 32-goal-season for Liverpool in which he was voted the PFA's player of the year.

The boots will be placed in the Egyptian section, next to pharaohs, as Salah prepares to lead his national team, known as The Pharaohs, out in the World Cup.

Neal Spencer, Keeper of Ancient Egypt and Sudan said, "This acquisition brings the British Museum's world-famous Egyptian collection right up to date".

The Egyptian footballer's Adidas boots have been donated to the museum to celebrate being the top goalscorer in the Premier League this season.

His boots will go on display in the run up to Liverpool's Champions League final match against Real Madrid.

The Egyptian exhibition at the museum was launched in 2016 and Salah's boots are the first of a number of different items which will be put in there over the next few weeks.
