So, it turns out that Mohamed Salah is a Game of Thrones fan.

The Egyptian footballer has been in New York this week attending the Time 100 event, which took place on Tuesday in New York.

The Liverpool forward met a number of celebrities during the event, but it was meeting actress Emilia Clarke from the TV show Game of Thrones that drew him to social media.

Salah, 26, tweeted a picture of himself with Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryan, during the event, writing "The mother of dragons herself..." with a smiling emoji to complete the sentence.

Salah enjoyed his break in the United States, even tweeting out another image of him in front of two pizzas at a pizzeria in New York.

Salah returns to action on Friday as Liverpool take on Huddersfield Town, with the Merseyside club one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League title race with three games to go.

It is going to be a busy summer for Salah, with Egypt hosting the African Cup of Nations in June.

Game of Thrones is in its final season and the last episode is on May 19.
