In Sweden, Zlatan Ibrahomovic’s new stamp collection was released and received a great deal of demand domestically and abroad. Sweden’s postal service, Posten, on Thursday began selling stamps featuring Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, drawing strong interest from fans as well as collectors. The official stamp was presented on the Posten’s quarterly bulletin.

“We have sold five million stamps in advance and that is a lot,” Posten’s head of stamps, Britt-Inger Hahne, told news agency TT.

Out of the five stamps, three are from the Sweden-England friendly in November 2012 when the Swedish star scored four times to give his side a 4-2 win, saving his most spectacular goal and at the inauguration of Friends Stadium- the outrageous long-range bicycle kick — for last.

“The French are particularly interested. One customer ordered 1,500 packages … for his French friends,” Hahne said in a statement. “Zlatan has a unique position on the pitch, among his fans and now also on the stamps,” she added.

“It’s a great honor,” Ibrahimovic said in a statement released by the postal service in November last year. “Personally, I mostly receive bills and they rarely have any pretty stamps. Maybe that will change now,” he added.
