The Hilarious Moment Mo Salah Thought Female Reporter Was Trying To Kiss Him
Mo Salah hilariously put his hand up when he thought a female TV reporter was trying to kiss him after the Champions League final on Saturday night.
Salah was giving an interview on the pitch after helping Liverpool win their sixth European Cup but because the noise was so deafening from the roaring Reds in the Wanda Metropolitano, the journalist leaned in to ask her final question.
However, in the moment, Salah thought that the reporter was making a move on him and he promptly swerved it by moving away.
The four-second clip of the Egyptian getting the wrong end of the stick has had fans in stitches on social media:
Fair play to Salah for the dodge because we know just how loyal he is to his wife Magi and daughter Makka - even if the reporter wasn't actually trying to pull him.
Though Salah did share a kiss with his new pal: the Champions League trophy.
He kissed her. :smile::clap: @MoSalah pic.twitter.com/rOrANMLEdx

A year ago in Kiev, Salah landed nastily on his shoulder after a first-half clash with Sergio Ramos. The painful injury forced him off in tears and meant he was far from fully fit for Egypt's first World Cup in 28 years.
But instead of erasing it from his memory Salah used last year's Champions League final nightmare as motivation for the 2-0 win Spurs in Madrid, where it was a wholly different experience.
"I looked at the picture from last year before the game," Salah said after the game, as per The Telegraph.
I didn't look at the picture for a long time. You can feel what you can beat you so I just looked at it one time and said, 'OK, let's go'.
"I was very disappointed that I got injured and went out after 30 minutes and we lost the game. It was something to motivate me to win this time."
Salah set Liverpool on their way with a penalty inside two minutes and has now been involved in an incredible 100 goals for the Reds since joining two seasons ago.
