Thousands Send Love to Egypt’s Prince of Hearts ‘Mohamed Aboutrika’

Mohamed Aboutrika received thousands of supportive posts on social media following a decision by authorities to add him to an official “terror list” on charges of funding the Muslim Brotherhood.

Known as The Prince of Hearts, The Magician, and The Saint, Aboutrika is one of his generation’s most successful African footballers.

The decision bans the longtime star of Cairo’s Al-Ahly club and the Egyptian national team from traveling, seizes his passport, and freezes his assets.

Aboutrika, who retired in 2013, denies the accusations and vows to pursue all the legal channels to defend his name.

Digital Boom brings you some of the posts.
