Bayeux Tapestry kit recreates Maradona, Cantona moments
Just in case you've ever wondered how football would look if covered using 15th-century embroidering techniques...
Using the Bayeux Tapestry Construction kit, Twitter user @CheapPanini ventured to recreate several seminal moments in football history, including Diego Maradona's "Hand of God" and Eric Cantona's infamous kung-fu kick.

And now a Bayeux Tapestry version of Maradona's 'Hand Of God' versus England in 1986. pic.twitter.com/xNeSeQ2Juj— Panini Cheapskates (@CheapPanini) January 19, 2018
Exquisite attention to detail included in both efforts, right down to the exact advertising hoarding Cantona leaped over at Selhurst Park on the dark, dingy day in 1066 -- sorry, 1995.
