Celebrating Salah’s journey to the status of a cultural icon, the interview examines how the 26-year old footballer came from humble beginnings in Egypt to learn his trade in Europe and becoming one of the world’s most well-known football stars in the rocess.

Photographed in Manchester by Buzz White and styled by Olivia Harding, the shoot sees Salah wearing brands including Cartier, Burberry, Off-White, Prada, Stone Island, Dunhill, Y-3 and Ermeneglido Zegna.
