Liverpool's in-form striker Mo Salah meets his lookalike, but which is the real Salah?

An Egyptian man with a striking resemblance to Mohamed Salah stole the spotlight at a cafe in Cairo as he joined other fans to watch the Liverpool forward play in the Champions League semi-final.

Salah scored twice in the first leg against Roma on April 24 as Liverpool won 5-2 and he was in action again in the Italian capital on Wednesday as Jurgen Klopp's side booked their place in the final with a 7-6 aggregate victory.

Fans of Egyptian superstar Salah took pictures in Nagrig of Ahmed Bahaa, a 30-year-old business graduate who met the PFA Player of the Year in 2016.

The duo had identical hair and beards, and to make matters more confusing, identical shirts.

"[Mohamed Salah] was taken aback [when he saw me], he said to me he feels like he's standing in front of a mirror, but that it is he who looks like me, because I am older," said Bahaa.

Bahaa said it was an honour to look like him because "he is the one thing bringing the most joy to Egypt right now".
