Twitter users are all in a tizzy after Russian pro tennis star Maria Sharapova tweeted a most wonderful tweet addressing the passenger sitting in front of her on a flight from Wuhan earlier this week.
Web users are searching for the identity of the random man who became the subject of Sharapova’s trolling Twitter post after she caught him so absorbed in a newspaper article about her that he didn’t even realize she was sitting right behind him.
“Hey buddy, I’m right behind you…” she captioned on the image posted to the microblogging site.
The image has been retweeted over 20,000 times, yet the man has yet to come forward.

Online, however, the incident has sparked a series of crucial questions, which we believe The Mirror summed up most concisely.
1) Who is the mystery man in the photo?
2) Has he realised that he is the subject of a magnificent tweet?
3) WHY is Maria Sharapova sat in economy class?! WHY?!
4) Is Maria Sharapova standing behind you right now?
The tweet was posted not long after Sharapova’s rough loss to Swiss player Timea Bacsinszky at the Wuhan Open on Wednesday.
Be alert next time you’re minding your business and swiping through your iPad in the economy class of a flight, for Maria Sharapova might just be watching you (CUE: “THERE IS A MARIA SHARAPOVA ON THE WING OF THE PLANE.”)
