Classy Mohamed Salah pays tribute to Son Heung-min after shared Golden Boot

Mohamed Salah made a classy gesture towards Tottenham Hotspur ace Son Heung-min after the duo were forced to share the Premier League Golden Boot.

The Egyptian King, 29, has enjoyed a sensational season at Liverpool, racking up an incredible 31 goals and 16 assists ahead of Sunday's Champions League final. After being deployed from the bench against Wolves, Salah's 84th-minute strike ensured he finished the season as the Premier League's top scorer – though he was forced to share the accolade.

Spurs ace Son, 29, bagged two in Tottenham's final day 5-0 demolition of Norwich City, meaning he also finished the campaign on 23 goals.

The South Korean then jetted off to his homeland to proudly parade the award and he was met with a rousing reception after touching down. The whole escapade was captured on film by Reuters as a thrilled Son was mobbed by adoring fans when holding up the trophy before being escorted away by security.

Despite being midway through preparations for the Champions League final against Real Madrid, Salah still took time out of his day to applaud his Premier League rival when seeing the video. The Reds star commented: "Congratulations Sonny!" in a tweet to his 16.4million followers.

Though it's clear the respect is mutual between two of the top-flight's greatest players as the Tottenham ace replied: "Thank you congratulations Mo."

Speaking after his two goals in Spurs' 5-0 win to claim the honour, Son said: "It’s incredible to have this award. I can’t believe it. I got really emotional. I dreamed of it as a child. Literally, it’s in my hands. I can’t believe it."

He also joked: "It’s really heavy, I wasn’t expecting that. It was a great, great day for me."
