(DAILYMAIL) — A British tourist is missing after falling more than 100ft overboard from the world’s biggest cruise ship off the coast of Mexico.

The Mexican navy and coastguard are still searching for the unnamed man, who is aged 30, but there is little hope he will be found alive.

He was among more than 4,500 passengers on board Allure of the Seas as it sailed from Florida to an island south of Cancun on a gay and lesbian-themed seven-day cruise.
