Salah referred to police over phone incident

The video appears to show Salah with a phone in his hand, and as his vehicle crept forward, he is filmed using both hands on the phone while he sat in traffic.

Liverpool management also confirmed that it had spoken to Salah and that it was dealing with the situation internally, but that neither it nor the player will comment further at this time, Metro reported.

The reports also revealed that fans of the Egyptian star surrounded his auto hoping he would sign for them or take a picture with him, but that never happened as he was engrossed with his phone.

Liverpool have referred Mo Salah to the police after appearing to use his mobile phone while driving.

Salah scored 44 goals for Liverpool last season and opened his account for the new campaign on Saturday, as Liverpool defeated West Ham 4-0 at Anfield to go top of the Premier League.

A Liverpool spokesperson has confirmed that the club themselves referred Salah to the police after speaking to the forward. However, Salah keeps looking at his phone and then continues to use his device for few seconds as he wheels away from the traffic.

Local police also shared a tweet to confirm it's investigating the incident.

Punishments for using a phone while driving can include a fine of up to £200 (Dh937) and six points on the drivers' license.
