Oh dear. And more from the BBC...

And The Guardian thinks it happened on the runway. Hmm.

Two aircraft involved in ‘minor collision’ on runway at Heathrow

Looking at ADSB EXCHANGE the Korean is still parked up with his transponder on. Not on the runway.

Interested to hear about any significant airports that have a zero ground incident record? Or indeed any airport?

There's a couple of articles, with info from people who were on board on mbl.is, also a picture of the damage, you might try to Google translate:

Sounds like FI had reached the gate and a full stop, people had stood up to prepare for disembarking. I'm booked with FI YYZ-KEF-CPH tonight, hope won't be affected now the fleet is an AC down.

Been there pushing back while we heard it on the radio. Apparently the Icelandic was not all the way parked at what had to be gate 242 at T2B while the 777 passed behind on L on the way to 27R. Think their VDGS did drop out and they were holding short. They noticed ground control that they felt a jolt and ground control told the 777 to hold position and then sent out the service vehicles to have a look. By that time we got our t/o clearance.
