With goals coming thick and fast, Mohamed Salah could now be the world’s greatest football player.
Now even more importantly, he is also helping to save the planet.
The Liverpool marksman, 29, recently joined world renown singer Ed Sheeran, 30, and more at the Duke of Cambridge’s Earthshot award ceremony, celebrating the initiatives helping to tackle the world’s climate change crisis.
Prince William and Kate gave an Earthshot prize to the minds behind the new technologies and revolutionary ideas helping to tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues.
Mohamed Salah, who is lauded by experts and football fans globally as the world’s best football player, displayed his compassion for the planet with an inspiring speech at the ceremony.
The Liverpool icon warned “by the end of the century, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean, it is scary, but the finalists have found ingenious solutions to revive our oceans.”
The Premier League forward has lit up the footballing world this calendar year, but through his taking time to attend such an event in such a busy schedule, he has shown that some things in life take priority, including saving our planet, a message all involved wish to convey to people across the world.
Speaking on the event, the Duke of Cambridge affirmed to the next generation
“We haven’t done enough to protect the planet for your future… we are going to find solutions to save the planet.”
William and the Duchess are intent on incentivising initiative in young people to find solutions for the problems in the world right now, and what better way than incorporating some of the world’s most beloved stars.
Towards the end of the evening Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran gave a fitting performance of new single ‘Visiting hours’ a song highlighting the pain of loss and the feelings of desiring one last chance to see someone.
It was a perfect way to convey the importance of taking action and making a difference now, to prevent this same situation, where we could realise it is too late.
