A source at Cairo International Airport (CAI) security revealed that Argentinian football player and FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is coming to Egypt on Wednesday, reports Al Watan.
The world-renowned footballer's visit reportedly comes as part of a promotional campaign for Tour n' Cure, which provides Hepatitis C patients from all over the world with affordable medical tourism packages in Egypt where they can be treated for the disease. Messi had agreed to become the face of the medical tourism initiative last year.
According to Shorouk News, Tour n' Cure's press office said that Messi's visit is expected to take place this week and that he would be making a huge announcement to his Egyptian fans during his stay. The campaign did not, however, specify the date on which Messi would be arriving.
