Woe is Han Solo, for his beloved Millennium Falcon has been spotted by Swiss treasure at the bottom of the Baltic Sea

Sonar images taken by a team of Swiss treasure hunters revealed something boasting an uncanny resemblance to the iconic Star Wars spaceship about 100 metres below the surface.

Peter Lindberg head of the Ocean Explorer undersea diving team said he'd never seen anything like it before.

'We had been looking for sunken treasure of the Sea of Bothnia in the northern Baltic Sea,' he told The Metro.

'We had been looking for champagne, wine and cognac laying in the holds of small Swedish merchant ships sunk by the Germans during the first world war.

'But in June we picked up this image during a sonar survey of the sea floor. I have never seen anything like it despite hundreds of hours of viewing sonar images.

'Unfortunately we don't have the money to investigate further.'

Jabba does.
