However, Salah, considered a role model to ‘100 million Egyptians’, has vowed to continue becoming a better version of himself.
“When you do something for the first time, nobody has done it as an Egyptian before, something great, it's something I have to be proud of,” Salah said.
“There are 100 million Egyptians who see me as a role model. That's something I have to be very proud of.
