Mohamed Salah fasting ahead of Champions League final?

Mohamed Salah will not break with religious tradition as he plans to continue fasting in the build-up to Liverpool's Champions League final, a report claims.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah reportedly intends to stick with religious tradition by fasting in the build-up to his side's Champions League final showdown with Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old has been in inspired form for the Reds during his maiden campaign on Merseyside to earn a clean sweep of individual accolades.

Salah has had to adapt his diet in the days leading up to Saturday's clash in Kiev, however, as Egyptian newspaper Al Masry al Youm reports that the devout Muslim has rejected the idea of breaking the fast.

Ramadan started on May 17 and lasts for 28 or 29 days, preventing Salah from drinking, eating, smoking and having sex, among other things, until the sun goes down.

The same report claims that the Egyptian's family will slaughter three calves to bless him ahead of the final.
