Cantona to swim the channel. Let’s hope he doesn’t have any trouble with seagulls and trawlers #LeBigSwim
I hope they live stream it... #LeBigSwim @Cantona_EDF
Gotta see king Eric swim the channel #LeBigSwim
If he does Cherbourg to Portsmouth like he points out, I’ll never drink any other beer again! @Kronenbourg1664 #LeBigSwim
