Arsene Wenger claims that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is "an exceptional athlete" and is impressed with the Sweden striker's fourth goal against England on Wednesday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has described Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as "an exceptional athlete" following his performance against England in Stockholm.

The 31-year-old scored all four goals for Sweden against the Three Lions in a 4-2 victory on Wednesday, including an overhead kick from nearly 30 yards.

"I believe we are all amazed because, sometimes, when a guy has a shot from 30 yards and puts it in the top corner, you say 'it's a fantastic goal' - but somehow you believe you can do that as well, even if you cannot do it on a consistent level," Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

"But when he scores a goal like that, you think it's impossible for a normal athlete. You have to be an exceptional athlete to do that.

"They say he's a master in kung-fu. You could see that on Wednesday night. You need some special flexibility, subtleness and physical strength to do that, apart from the fact that you have to realise what you have to do."

Arsenal will host Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates in the Premier League on Saturday.
