Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has become the first African player to score 30 goals in a single Premier League season.
The 25-year-old was on target to seal the Reds' 2-0 win over AFC Bournemouth on Saturday evening.
Salah eclipsed Didier Drogba's record of 29 goals which was scored in the 2009-10 Premier League season.
With his effort at Anfield, the Egypt international becomes the first Premier League player to score 40 goals and above across all competitions in a single season since Cristiano Ronaldo - 42 in the 2007-08 campaign.
Astounded by the record-breaking feats on Saturday, football enthusiasts took to Twitter to eulogise the 2017 African Player of the Year.

Salah, 30 PL goals is outstanding. Rightfully deserves the awards he has and will get but Firmino is so selfless & effective & never shows any dissatisfaction. He is the general— Sham (@LFC_RedBlooded) April 14, 2018
