Liverpool and Chelsea players got involved in the session before the Uefa Super Cup in Istanbul.

Amputee footballers played keepy-uppy with Mo Salah ahead of Liverpool’s Uefa Super Cup clash against Chelsea.

Players from both teams enjoyed a session chatting to and playing with some young footballers from the Turkish Sports Federation for the Physically Disabled, as well as Ali Turganbekov, a young boy from Kazakhstan who was born without legs.

In a series of videos tweeted by the clubs and the Uefa Foundation, the kids can been seeing enjoying kickabouts and keepy-uppy sessions with players including Salah, Sadio Mane and N’golo Kante at Besiktas Park in Istanbul.

Another shows Olivier Giroud chatting and shaking hands with one of the young players, Agit Siyar.

The event is intended to “highlight that football leaves no one aside”, according the Uefa Foundation.

Youngsters from the Turkish Sports Federation for the Physically Disabled will also join the Turkish Radio and Television polyphonic children’s choir to sing Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds at the opening ceremony for Wednesday’s Super Cup.
