Salah's boots on display at the British Museum

Trophy in the bag? Real Madrid star'terrified of Mohamed Salah says Egypt legend

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.

The Liverpool forward's boots have been donated to the museum to celebrate his Golden Boot award for being the Premier League's top scorer.

But not even Salah's biggest fans could've expected his boots to be given such reverence in the British Museum, where they'll be displayed alongside ancient Egyptian sandals in a gallery near its mummies.

Once Salah completes his campaign with Liverpool, he'll lead Egypt to Russian Federation in the World Cup.

Neal Spencer, assistant keeper of the museum's Ancient Egypt and Sudan department, said the boots were an important exhibition of modern Egyptian history.
