Mohamed Salah saved a homeless man from being harassed by a group of men before gifting him £100.
The Liverpool star swiftly moved to calm a potential confrontation at a petrol station near Anfield following the Reds’ 3-1 victory over Arsenal last month.
The Egypt international could be seen on CCTV stepping in before giving £100 to a stunned David Craig.
“Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch,” Mr Craig is quoted as saying by the Sun.
“He heard what a group of lads were saying to me, then turned to them and said, ‘That could be you in a few years’.
“I only knew I wasn’t hallucinating when Mo incredibly handed me £100. What a complete legend.”
Mr Craig insisted the group of men had been hassling him and calling him names.
But Salah then had a conversation with the men before making a trip to the cash machine to support Mr Craig.
The former labourer, 50, hailed Salah as “a real-life hero” for his intervention and help.
