Mohamed Salah was seen in a celebratory mood at his brother Nasr's wedding in Cairo.

The Egyptian sporting superstar flew in from the UK for the big occasion and was filmed dancing the night away in scenes which spread quickly around the internet.

In one video, the Liverpool player could be seen surrounded by other men as they encouraged him to show his moves.

While in some footage shared on social media Salah was seen wearing a mask as a measure against the coronavirus, in other videos he is not.

Many of the attendees at the event were also mask-less, and social distancing certainly wasn't being observed. Salah undergoes regular coronavirus testing as part of English Premier League protocol.

He wasn't the only Egyptian Premier League footballer to be in attendance, as Aston Villa's Trezeguet was also present.

The pair were due to be in Egypt this week for international duty, as they are set to face Togo on November 14 and 17 in qualifying matches for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

Egypt in the past few days tightened its enforcement of preventative measures, warning residents that authorities intended to collect the 4,000-pound ($255) fine for not wearing a mask in public indoor spaces.

The daily number of new Covid-19 infections has edged higher, crossing the 200-mark last week after averaging 150-170 cases since early September. The daily death toll has remained under 20, according to Health Ministry figures.
