The 787 was parked in the remote area near two QF A380s, and had been there over 12 hours. The fuselage crown immediately forward of the empennage / tail section shows perhaps a meter or more of damage along the top centerline (the BBC article here has video).

A Thompson 787 just aborted a transatlanic flight and has returned to MAN - no connection we know of (Thompson announced the return was precautionary), but things are not looking up for Boeing today.
