When you are a national icon like Mo Salah, what do you do when fans turn out outside your doorsteps in their droves; unannounced?
The Egypt international, who returned home after the world cup with the Pharaohs where they crashed out in the group stages, had his home address leaked on facebook – but by who?
So, when the passionate Egyptian football fans got wind and decided to pay him an impromptu visit – at night – the star simply obliged, joining the teeming crowd on the streets where he signed autographs, per @Shaimaakhalil [BBC].

Salah scored two goals in his first world cup appearance with Egypt, but could not help salvage a poor outing that ended with a win for the Pharaohs.
