Former Barcelona football club captain and Spanish international Carles Puyol visited the Giza pyramids and the as-yet-unopened Grand Egyptian Museum on Friday.
Guided by Tarek Tewfik, the museum's supervisor, the former European and world champion was shown the state-of-the-art laboratory at the museum and told about the details of its coming collections. Tewfik told Ahram Online that Puyol expressed his desire to attend the museum's upcoming official opening.
