Egyptian goalkeeper Mahmoud Gad's reflexes were tested to their limits in an Egyptian Premier League fixture recently. Mahmoud Gad, who plies his trade for ENPPI SC in the Egyptian Premier League, rushed out of his box to head the ball away against the Pyramids before sprinting back to make a last-ditch save very close to the goal-line. The video of the 22-year-old goalkeeper's incredible saves went viral on Twitter making him an overnight star. One fan called it "the greatest double save ever".
