Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has been referred to the police by his club after he was apparently filmed using a mobile phone while driving. Merseyside Police confirmed in a tweet that the video had been passed to the relevant department.
A spokesman for the Premier League club said they had alerted police after discussions with the player. They added that any follow-up action on the Egypt international would be dealt with internally.
The video, which has been circulated on Twitter, appears to show the player, who scored forty-four goals for Liverpool last season, using his phone while behind the wheel as his car is surrounded by fans, including children.
