DUBAI: The seaside town of Hurghada in Egypt played host to Real Madrid football team captain Sergio Ramos and his family over the past week, and he took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message with his Egyptian fans.
Ramos was in Egypt with his wife, Pilar Rubio, and their three children on what local media reported as the pair’s honeymoon — they got married in June.
“One of the best trips ever. Now I know why everyone speaks so highly of Egypt and its people. Egypt, you will always have a piece of my heart. It was an incredible experience,” Ramos told his 33 million Instagram followers.

And my dear Kamel, I didn't know you personally when we arrived but now I can safely say I have met a friend. My family and I want to thank you for your kindness, generosity and hospitality. All the best! Un viaje inolvidable. Egipto y su maravillosa gente tendrán siempre un hueco en mi corazón. Gracias en especial a mi amigo Kamel por su amabilidad y hospitalidad.
The star’s fans and hotel staff welcomed him with a red-carpet entrance and large posters hung on the resort’s walls.
The footballer spent five days at the five-star Dana Beach Resort.
