Mane previously told how his father died due to a lack of medical facilities in the remote west African town.

He has now donated almost £500,000 to have the hospital built. It is due to open on June 20.

Mane met Senegal president Macky Sall earlier this week to officially gift the facility to the state.

The president's office announced: "Senegal international Sadio Mane was received by President Macky Sall on Thursday.

"The Liverpool player came to tell the head of state about his social initiatives, notably the building of a hospital at Bambali.

"He sought the state's assistance in providing medical staff for it."

Senegalese media published pictures of Mane and Sall at the president's palace in capital city Dakar.

The hospital will have an A&E department, maternity care, dental facilities and consulting rooms.
