- Mohamed Salah melted hearts after the Egyptian goal-king sent a gift of a boot to Hamis al Gacir
- Hamis, 8, lost his right leg to a bomb attack in Syria and has since been using a prosthetic leg
- The Syrian lad's love for Salah and Liverpool was incomprehensible, but it all paid off thanks to the Egyptian's kind gesture
Mohammed Salah may not be the best footballer in the world but he is arguably the nicest guy in the game right now after the Liverpool star gifted his boots to Hamis al Gacir, a Syrian lad who lost his leg in a bomb blast.
Salah's gesture caught the attention of the world again after he sent his boot to Hamis, 8, who is a staunch supporter of the Egyptian goal-king and his club, Liverpool.
Hamis al Gacir lost his right leg to a bomb attack by the Assad Regime Forces in Idlib, Syria, forcing him to find solace in the Turkish province of Hatay where he is now making walking thanks to a prosthetic leg.
Despite the nightmarish situation in which he was plunged into, Hamis' love for his idol remained unwavering, and subsequently caught the attention of Salah who sent him a lovely gift to remember.
The Liverpool star sent over a signed boot and crampons attached to a framed poster with his football illustrations in the background.
Delighted Hamis posed for a pic with the gift, after which he was seen playing football with the boot, making Salah, who has dedicated his life to charity, a happy man.
Salah rose to prominence in Liverpool and has since enjoyed a warm reception across the globe after helping the Reds win their sixth UEFA Champions League title.
The 27-year-old is a known giver and humanitarian who has committed a large chunk of his earnings to build a hospital and schools in his hometown Nagrig.
Mohamed Salah donated £500 000 to a child cancer cause at Cairo's 57357 Hospital in 2018.
