Liverpool star Mo Salah stopped to help a young fan who broke his nose while excitedly running after his car.

Eleven-year-old Louis Fowler knocked himself unconscious while trying to keep up with Salah's car as he left Liverpool Football Club's Melwood training ground.

But Salah turned his Bentley round and came back to check the boy was OK.

Tearful young Louis posed for a picture with Salah with a bloodied nose which was later re-set at Alder Hey children's hospital where he shared his story with staff and patients.

The boy's father posted pictures of the footballer with his son on Twitter.

Joe Cooper wrote: "Thank you for coming back to check on my boys after Louis KO’d himself trying to get a wave!

"He loves you so much and the pain went away instantly when you came to give them a hug.

"A nose reset worth well worth it he said. You are a top man and a true gent!

"This man deserves endless praise! These little reds are going to bed so happy tonight!"
