Egyptian football star Mohamed Aboutrika has slammed an Israeli man for taking a photograph with him without identifying himself.

Aboutrika said on his official Twitter account yesterday: "I did not know and I apologise for the photograph. We will never recognise the Zionist entity of killers and occupation. The Palestinian cause is the main cause of the Arab and Islamic people."

Israeli journalist Roi Kais published on his Twitter account a photograph of Aboutrika with an Israeli fan in Moscow with the caption: "With the Egyptian football legend Mohamed Aboutrika".

The Egyptian footballer was quick to respond and explain.
