Egypt has unveiled the mascot for next month's African Cup of Nations, named "TUT" and adorned like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh.

"After a long journey ... He is finally here ... Say Hi to our special host for the AFCON 2019," the Egyptian Football Association announced when unveiling the mascot.

Egypt will host the 2019 African Cup of Nations, which has been expanded to 24 teams, from 21 June to 19 July.

The record seven-time African champions will play in Group A along with DR Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

Egypt, who won their last Nations Cup title in 2010, reached the final of the 2017 edition only to lose 2-1 to Cameroon

The opening match, which will feature the Pharaohs, is scheduled to take place at the 74,100-seat Cairo Stadium.
