Sadio Mane became a subject in an examination question in Morocco for students writing their final test to qualify for higher education.

The Al-Nassr star, who is back in his native, Senegal, could not feature for the Teranga Lions in the World Cup qualifiers against DR Congo and Mauritania due to injury.

However, his exemplary life became a topic in an exam, as students were quizzed about his personality and career.

Mane is known for his humility and philanthropic work in Senegal and other parts of the world. The 32-year-old serves as a role model for many young footballers across Africa.

In a photo that has been trending on social media, Mane is seen on the examination sheet of students in Morocco with questions centred around him.

The two-time African player of the year left Europe for the Middle East last summer, joining Saudi Arabian giants Al-Nassr, where he is teammates with the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.

In his first season with the Knights of Najd, Mane helped the club finish second in the Saudi Pro League while also playing a role as Al-Nassr reached the King's Cup final. He scored 19 goals across all competitions for the club, per Transfermarkt.

Mane ruled out of World Cup qualifiers

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Al-Nassr forward, Sadio Mane was ruled out of Senegal's 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches due to an injury.

The former Liverpool winger missed the 1-1 draw against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Dakar and the 1-0 win in Nouakchott against Mauritania.

However, he is expected to be fit when the World Cup qualifiers return next year in March.

Walker names Mane as toughest opponent

Sports Brief also reported that England defender Kyle Walker named Sadio Mane as the toughest opponent he ever faced.

Walker, regarded as the best right-back in the world at the moment, has faced the Senegalese forward 15 times throughout his stellar and successful career, from his days at Southampton to Bayern Munich.

Of the 15 meetings, Mane has won six, drawn six and lost only three, two of which were heavy defeats during his time at Liverpool.
