Mo Salah's boots go on display at British Museum
POSTED 23 May 2018 . BY Tom Walker
Egyptian striker Mo Salah, winner of this year's Golden Boot for being the top goalscorer in the English Premier League, has donated a pair of his boots to the British Museum, where they have entered the institution's world-famous Egyptian collection.

Salah's goal-scoring feats have led him to become a national hero in his home country, and the inclusion of his boots is part of the British Museum's Modern Egypt Project, which aims to bolster the number of contemporary items from current day Egypt.

The boots went on display in gallery 61 this week, in the run-up to the UEFA Champions League final, in which Salah will feature as part of the Liverpool team facing Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The boots have been displayed next to footwear from ancient Egypt and adjacent to a selection of gold pharaonic jewellery.

The Modern Egypt Project was launched in 2016 to bolster the British Museum's collection of contemporary material from modern Egypt.

The museum has been collecting diverse objects from daily life, designed to "tell the stories of modern Egypt through material things".
