KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - The daughter of the chief steward aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines jet MH370 has thanked Liverpool fans for giving her a signed jersey in honour of her football-mad father.

Ms Maira Elizabeth Nari - who has become a social media phenomenon in Malaysia for her poignant posts refusing to give up hope of finding her father alive - said three Malaysian Liverpool fans "went through a few obstacles" to get the shirt signed by the club's players and manager after a recent game at Anfield.

"Feeling so blessed! I've no clue how to thank all of you," the 17-year-old wrote as she posted a picture of the shirt over the weekend, which has been shared on Twitter nearly 3,500 times.
