Egyptian Liverpool star Mo Salah was pictured paying the petrol bill for all the customer's present at a local Sainsbury's petrol station. 

The record-breaking goal scorer had already won the hearts of Liverpool's locals, on and off the field, before this latest act of generosity.

"Mo Salah just casually paying for everyone's petrol at Sainsbury's, Old Swan, in a full @LFC training kit too," the tweet sharing the news read.

His latest kind gesture garnered praise on social media.

"Absolute champ," one social media user wrote.

Another one commented: "He's taking no contact to extremes, not letting anyone else near the till."

"Imagine popping over for lunch an Mo was filling up his bentley!" another person commented.

League leaders Liverpool are back in training after the season was suspended due to coronavirus.

Salah signed to Premier League club Liverpool FC in 2017 for a then club-record fee of £36.9 million.

The season he joined, Salah broke the Premier League scoring record for a 38-game season, receiving the Premier League Golden Boot after netting 32 goals in 36 league games.

Last season, he helped the club win the 2019 UEFA Champions League.

Salah is not only a record-breaking goal scorer, but also one of the most visibly Muslim players in the UK.

The superstar player regularly performs an Islamic prostration to thank God every time he scores a goal, an action which has been included in the FIFA 2019 video game.

His football success proving extremely popular among fans, 27-year-old Salah has been credited with bringing down levels of hate crimes and Islamophobia in the Liverpool area since joining the club, according to a study.
