Zimbabwe Warriors' super fan loses passport in Egypt
This is just the latest mishap and adventure which has seen Alvin "Aluvah" Zhakata become a celebrity.
Sadly, he did not get to see the Zimbabwe Warriors play in their first match. He did, however, get a ticket to see Friday's final - a special present from the head of African football - which saw Algeria beat Senegal 1-0.
That, though, may have been Zhakata's undoing as he lost his passport at the match while supporting Senegal, the BBC's Steve Vickers reports.
More Aluvah drama! Warriors fan @AlvinZhakata lost his passport at the final of #AFCON2019 - says it fell out of his pocket while supporting Senegal! The passport was found by Senegal fans and is currently in Alexandria, 220km away, and will be brought here to Cairo tomorrow! pic.twitter.com/gskZyrVa5b— Steve Vickers (@SteveVickers5) July 21, 2019
Luckily someone did find it, but the passport somehow made its way to Alexandria, 220km (137 miles) from Cairo.
Zhakata should get it back in Monday.
His philosophy is that you need to be "patient and strong" while pursuing your dream - no doubt that has come in handy in the latest drama in his adventure.
