Sad news from Egypt following the death of former top ten player Magdi Saad.
Sara El Noamany writes on Facebook:
I’m in total denial of Captain Magdi Saad’s death. Although I asked many people wishing they would refute it, they all confirmed it. However, I still don’t want to believe it.
That is because he was a phenomenal person inside out. Unfortunately, he didn’t take the position or spotlight he deserved to take in this world because of his modesty, kindness and seriousness. Therefore, I pray he takes it in heaven which is way more crucial for him.
There is a popular quote which says, “ When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. “ Captain Magdy, since you were such a lovable person, I want to tell you that if love could have saved you, you would have guaranteed to live forever.
