A Cairo-bound EgyptAir jet, which was flying from Paris with 66 passengers and crew this Thursday, disappeared suspiciously from the radar over the Mediterranean south of Greece, with Athens claiming that the plane deviated in mid-air before tumbling from a great height and suddenly vanishing.
But the big news is many twitter posts are claiming that Manchester United legend Eric Cantona was one of those 66 missing passengers who were on that jet. However, there are no official confirmation of the news. Some tweets are also claiming that Cantona’s agent has confirmed his presence on that plane, but for now nothing is official.
Check out some of the twitter reactions on the incident:

Hopefully, the news about Eric Cantona being on the Egypt Air flight is false.
