Egypt fan grabs Mohamed Salah's injured shoulder

There was a collective sharp intake of breath right the way across Egypt over the weekend as one fan came perilously close to unwittingly jeopardising Mohamed Salah's World Cup prospects.

As Salah clambered aboard the team bus, one supporter stopped the star forward in order to grab a quick selfie.

Unfortunately, amid the excitement, the fan momentarily forgot that Salah has just spent the last few weeks recovering from a pesky shoulder injury.

Ouch. Nothing more than a pained wince from the Liverpool star but still, it's obvious he's still a little bit sore from his tangle with Sergio Ramos.

Salah took no part in Egypt's training session on Sunday with team doctor Mohamed Abou al-Ela confirming the 25-year-old is "still feeling pain" and therefore is unlikely to be fit to face Uruguay in their World Cup opener on Friday afternoon.
