Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reportedly working alongside the Swedish post office to create stamps with his face on.

The Swedish postal service have planned to pay tribute to the country's football hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic by putting his face on their stamps.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker, who will try to send his nation to the World Cup in a playoff against Portugal this week, is working with the post office to produce five designs.

"It's a great honour to be on a postage stamp, and I'm very proud to be selected," 101greatgoals.com quotes Ibrahimovic as saying.

"I get a lot of bills and there are rarely great stamps. Maybe that will change now!"

The stamps are expected to be released on March 27 next year.
