CAIRO, July 16, (APP/AFP) - The final leg of an unprecedented world tour by a solar plane was postponed on Saturday due to the pilot's health, he said in a message on Twitter.

The plane had been scheduled to leave Cairo for Abu Dhabi.

"I'm sick. Stomach upset. I prefer to postpone the take-off @solarimpule. I cannot go flying for 48 hours in that shape. Sorry," wrote Bertrand Piccard on Twitter.
