Mo Salah’s doppelganger substitutes him in some ads

  • Ahmad Bahaa is an engineer
  • He appeared in Eyptian Vodafone and Pepsi ads

DUBAI: Ahmad Bahaa’s image went viral last year on social media, for one simple reason: he is the look-a-like of internationally famous football player Mo Salah.

Bahaa lives in Egypt and works as an engineer, but he has also substituted Salah in some advertisements, Dubai daily Gulf News reported on Sunday.

“I do some of Mo’s shots for his advertisements when he is busy with the English Premier League,” Bahaa said I an interview with an Egyptian TV channel.

He appeared instead of Salah in the Vodafone and Pepsi ads, in the parts which are shot in Egypt.

A video shows Salah’s reaction after he met Bahaa, as the footballer himself was surprised by the resemblance.
