BARCELONA superstar Lionel Messi arrived in Cairo on Tuesday — a week later than scheduled for his one-day trip — to participate in the Tour n’ Cure campaign targeting Hepatitis C, the country’s biggest killer. This is Messi’s second trip to Egypt, where he is widely idolised — the first took place in 2007 — and it is to promote the combined tourism and Hepatitis C treatment travel packages provided by the tour. With the celebrated Egyptologist Zahi Hawass and his Spanish guide, Messi visited the Giza Plateau and spent time inside the Great Pyramid.
