- Egypt’s 28-23 win over Russia in the handball championships got attention from Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 3:42) and Ala Mas'ouleety (watch: runtime: 2:42).
- El Sisi speech: Masaa DMC’s Ramy Radwan (watch, runtime: 3:51) and Al Hayah Al Youm’s Mohamed Sherdy (watch, runtime: 7:14) covered President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s speech on the 60th anniversary of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, during which he praised Egypt's economic performance in light of the covid-19 outbreak.
