It is barely overstating the matter to say Zlatan Ibrahimovic has attained living legend status in Sweden – he is the country’s top scorer and is being immortalised in a statue outside the national stadium.
Now, the striker has his face on currency after being represented on the 1,000 kroner note by a Swedish artist.
The former Manchester United, Barcelona and Juventus striker seemed impressed with the piece, made by photographer Bingo Rimer.
However the famously self-confident forward will be pleased with Rimer’s choice of note, with 1,000 kroner – roughly equivalent to £120 or ₦38000 – the largest denomination available in Swedish currency.
Rimer posted further pictures of his art to social media, including a large canvas of the note, featuring a head shot of Zlatan with a smaller version of the player celebrating a goal.
