The video, which quickly spread on social media, shows the young boy running to “the Egyptian King”, who dealt with the incident by hugging the boy and whispering words into his ear amid a clapping audience.
Many joked on social media about the incident saying that “the boy got closer to Salah than West Ham players did” in the whole match.
Others praised Salah's classiness in dealing with the boy.
