Mohamed - who is currently away on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Egypt - has caused controversy in his homeland, with his friend now the subject of a police investigation.

As reported by Goal, the pair live on the same street in Egypt, and it is thought that it's not the first time Mohamed has found an academic stand-in to sit an exam for him.

The 24-year-old forward is studying for an Information Technology qualification at the Higher Institute for Management and Information Technology in Giza.

He had been due to sit mid-year exams in January, but as he is currently competing at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, he was unable to attend.

Therefore, Mohamed is alleged to have asked a friend to sit in for him and complete the tests that he had been set to miss.

However, his claim has been dismissed by Youm7, who say that Mohamed has seen three previous exams completed by someone else.

The impersonator has been taken in by police for questioning, and is reported to have told authorities that he had agreed a plan with Mohamed before he left for AFCON.
