Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will have his record-breaking boots displayed as exhibit in the British Museum - one of the world's most prestigious museums.

A statement on the British Museum's twitter account said, "We've made an exciting new acquisition!"

This season, Salah has scored 44 goals in 51 games with Liverpool, and next week he will be leading the Reds' attack in the Champions League final in Kiev.

The Adidas X17 Deadly Strike boots of Salah's have been given to the British Museum after the Egyptian won the Premier League's Golden Boot.

In an incredible season, the record-breaking forward also guided Egypt to this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, scoring twice in a 2-1 win over Congo to seal his country's first appearance since 1990.

Suns Win Draft Lottery, #AytonsPlace
The center from Texas just turned twenty years old this week, and could help solidify the Magic's frontcourt for years to come. They're talented players, and if either are left at No.31 and it fits with what the Suns are doing, I would be happy.

The pair of boots will be on display among the biggest collection of Egyptian objects outside of Egypt, including the Rosetta Stone, an ancient decree issued during the Ptolemaic dynasty in 196BC.

"The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the United Kingdom, with a truly global impact".

The Egypt global has been earning huge amounts of praise for his strong form for the Merseyside outfit this season after his move to Anfield from AS Roma last summer.

The 25-year-old will now be hoping to help Liverpool FC end the campaign in the best possible fashion when they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the end of the month. Muslim leaders claim his success is helping tackle Islamophobia.
