Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah mistakenly assumed a reporter was trying to kiss him after Saturday night’s Champions League win over Tottenham.
The Egyptian scored the opening goal in the European Cup final at Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid over the weekend, netting from the penalty spot with just two minutes on the clock.
Divock Origi came off the bench to seal a 2-0 victory for the Reds late on, sparking wild scenes of celebration in the stands and on the pitch after the final whistle.
When being interviewed by a female reporter post-match, Salah hilariously rejected her when he thought she was trying to go in for a kiss, raising his hand politely as she leaned in closer so that he could hear her questions.
