A shirtless man reportedly sparked a "massive brawl" on board an Air Mediterranee flight after uritinating on a fellow passenger.

Flight ML2673 was flying from the Algerian capital of Algiers to Paris on Monday afternoon when flight attendants were forced to overpower the man after he became unruly.

The plane was diverted to Lyon halfway through its 90-minute journey when the man became angry because he was not allowed to smoke or drink onboard, French media reported.

Flight attendants pinned the man to the ground after he reportedly urinated on a fellow passenger and caused a fight.

He was escorted off the Airbus A321 at Lyon's international airport by police, along with another man involved in the brawl.

The plane eventually took off again and passengers arrived at Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport three hours later than scheduled.
