Egyptians voted for Liverpool hero Mo Salah to become president – as more than one million people spoiled their ballot papers in the presidential election.
Red-hot Salah is the top scorer in the Premier League with 28 goals to his name this season.
And now it seems like people from his homeland are desperate for him to turn his hands to politics, too.
Voters crossed out the names of the two candidates on the ballot and instead wrote down Salah’s.
Abdul Fattah al-Sisi was re-elected for a second four-year term after sweeping up 92 per cent of the vote while Moussa Mustafa Moussa, the only other approved candidate, got just three per cent of the vote.
Spoiled ballot papers accounted for five per cent of the vote, with a chunk of those seemingly belonging to Salah.
Three potential candidates dropped out of the race while a fourth – a former military chief – was arrested and accused of running for office without permission.
As well as electrifying Liverpool and being linked with a £200million move to Real Madrid, Salah has notched 33 goals in 55 appearances for his country.
He scored the last-minute penalty that secured Egypt’s qualification for this summer’s World Cup.
Salah features for Liverpool against Crystal Palace today.
He scored four in the last game before the international break, the 5-0 demolition of Watford.
The forward has scored 36 goals in all competitions this season.
But his Prem tally matches or is better than five Premier League teams at the time of writing: Brighton, Burnley, Swansea, Huddersfield and West Brom.
