A picture of Egyptian striker and Liverpool player Mohamed ‘Mo’ Salah standing alongside a young boy wearing a Liverpool shirt with a bleeding nose has been circulating social media over the past few days.

According to several reports, the boy is an 11-year-old Liverpool fan named Louis Fowler, who was waiting  outside Liverpool’s Melwood Training Ground with his 10-year-old brother, Isaac, hoping to get a wave and pictures of their favorite players.

After catching a glimpse of Salah driving away in his Bentley, Louis and his brother Isaac tried to run behind the car to get Salah’s signature and take a picture with him. During the chase, the 11-year-old hit a street light pole before falling onto the ground with blood dripping from his nose.

Salah drove back and pulled over to make sure that the young boy was okay. Louis’s pain was instantly forgotten after seeing his hero pull up at the close. Salah hugged the two brothers before posing for a photograph with each while promising to check up on Louis later.

In an on-air interview with BBC, Louis said “It was worth busting my nose to meet Mo Salah.”

@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,” the boy’s stepfather, Joe Cooper, wrote in a tweet to Salah attaching the captured pictures.

Cooper then took Louis to the hospital for a check up. The young boy is now okay.
