Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is holidaying in the Maldives after a low key World Cup outing with Egypt in Russia.

Salah posted pictures on Twitter of him having a “good time” in the Indian Ocean Island.

Visit Maldives confirmed the presence of the “Egyptian King” in the country.

“The globally-acclaimed Egyptian football player Mo Salah chooses Maldives for a post-world cup family vacation,” the tourism body tweeted.

The 25-year-old scored twice as the Pharaohs crushed out the Russian showpiece winless after three group matches against the hosts, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.

His goals came in 3-1 and 2-1 defeats to Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Salah had a memorable 2017-18 season with Liverpool in the Premier League – emerging the top scorer with 32 goals.
