Uff, too retable.
Okay so, whether you have been best friends with someone of the opposite gender for forever or you are completely open, hugs can be very incriminating things.
Most of the time, this is the reaction onlooking aunties will give
Yep. Just think back to all those times you met your guy or girl friends in public and didn’t know whether to hug them or awkwardly shake their hand.
You all know what I am talking about. In a place like Pakistan, compared to western countries, having a friendly physical relationship with someone of the opposite gender can be tricky, we’re used to it. Which is why it was pretty hilarious to see that someone, as exposed as a professional footballer, would have this issue but alas…
Footballer Mo Salah’s Mama just went off on her son for hugging a girl
And it’s just the most wholesome relatable thing you will see.
Salah posted his Mom’s reaction on his Insta story, showing all of his fans that even a pro baller like him gets shit for ‘inappropriate pictures.’ He isn’t even properly hugging the chick, it’s as if he knows he’s going to get in trouble with his mom later that night.
Look at that, that’s the proper shot.
Mo Salah in a dilemma
Right hand: Should I grab her waist?
Left hand: No mate, the camera's on us!

That is a respectable picture.
Also just a heads up, Salah is married to his childhood sweetheart, so his wife was probably secretly laughing it off as well.
The best part is that roughly translated, she said, “If my husband were to do that, I would get a divorce.” AMAZING. Now THAT is parenting 101.
People cannot stop getting a kick out of it. (See what I did there?)

Mo Salah got called out for hugging a female fan …

And ironically, even though Mo Mama’s reaction was priceless, it is probably what will get millions of new women to follow him on Insta, hoping for a picture with him or even a DM. Probably not what she was banking on, or his wife for that matter.
But the fact that he posted the image on his public Instagram account, equipped with a whopping 24.7 million followers, just proves that this guy is handling his fame and glory the right way.
In a world of Ronaldo’s, it’s good to be a Mohammad Salah.
Well, you know what I mean.
