According to viewers on social media, the footage was captured at the Al-Rahma mosque in Liverpool.

Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane, who is paid £90,000 a week, was spotted cleaning toilets of a local mosque hours after win over Leicester, in an act of dedication to his Muslim faith.

The video shows Mane filling buckets with water as a young boy grabs hold of a pressure washer to clean the floor.

Mane has been in fine form this season, scoring four times in Liverpool's ideal start to their Premier League campaign - including bagging the first goal in the team's 2-1 win away at Leicester on Saturday.

The Liverpool star is a devout Muslim and is often pictured at mosques in the city, whilst he celebrates goals by performing the sujood, which sees him touch his head on the turf and praying.

Hazard tips Chelsea for title push under Maurizio Sarri
The match is shaping up to be an enthralling encounter given Chelsea's new attacking license under Maurizio Sarri . I think in a couple of weeks we are playing Liverpool [at Stamford Bridge], a massive game.

The former Southampton star was brought up in Senegal, where his father is the imam in their local mosque.

The Senegalese forward then went to his local mosque in Liverpool yesterday evening and was seen helping to clean the toilets.

After four top-flight games, Liverpool sit at the very summit of the Premier League table with a 100% record. He scored twice on the opening day against West Ham, sealed the three points with a late goal at Crystal Palace and put the Reds in front at Leicester on Saturday.

The striker will next be in action for Senegal when they take on Madagascar in an African Nations qualifier on Sunday.
