Watch: Mo Salah shows off acting skills in anti-drugs advert


Liverpool star Mo Salah has thrown his weight behind a campaign urging young people to say no to drugs.

While Salah has quickly become a hero at Liverpool this season, scoring 37 goals in all competitions in his debut season at Anfield, that’s nothing compared to his status in his native Egypt.

The former Chelsea and Roma forward is a national hero, helped by scoring the crucial last-gasp penalty which fired his country to this summer’s World Cup.

Salah is also admired for his off-pitch philanthropy, the latest example of which features the 25-year-old starring in an anti-drugs advert.
