Liverpool star Mohamed Salah's convincing lookalike (Ahmed Bahaa) has been spotted in Egypt - the Liverpool man's home country.

Salah has become a national icon after his 43-goal campaign at Anfield and will lead Egypt into their first World Cup appearance in 28 years this summer with hopes firmly on his shoulders.

And Salah's success on the pitch appears to have been good news for Ahmed Bahaa, who has gained plenty of media attention for his ridiculous likeness to the diminutive winger as a result.

According to The Daily, Bahaa has regularly been seen on Egyptian television posing in both the Egyptian national and Liverpool shirts baring Salah's name. In videos of him roaming the streets, plenty of people believe they are meeting the man himself and with good reason.

Driving home just how similar the pair actually look, Salah met his lookalike back in 2016, when he was still a household name in Egypt but had not yet unleashed his incredible talents on English football.

After failing to originally impress with Chelsea, Salah returned to English football last summer when Liverpool committed £39million to sign him from Roma and has since scored a record-equalling 31 goals in the Premier League alone.
