After scoring the opening goal in Liverpool's 2-1 win at Leicester City at the start of September, Sadio Mane could have been forgiven for celebrating after the game.

In reality, the unassuming Senegalese forward, 26, was content to help out with cleaning the toilets at a mosque in Liverpool.

The image, which was widely shared on social media, was a striking contrast to the stereotypical image of 'pampered' Premier League footballers.

Mane is happy to be away from the limelight, according to the imam at Al Rahma Mosque in the Toxteth area of Liverpool.
