Argentine superstar Lionel Messi postponed a visit to Egypt to promote a campaign to fight Hepatitis C in the wake of Barcelona’s defeat by Paris Saint-Germain, Egypt’s tourism ministry said on Wednesday.

“The visit has been officially postponed, (Messi) said he could not come at the last minute,” said ministry spokeswoman Omaima al-Husseini. She said he was rescheduling the visit.

Paris Saint-Germain defeated Barcelony 4-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday in a major upset for the Spanish giants.
