You can buy Zlatan postage stamps now, Sweden

Just don’t use them if your penpal’s name is Pep Guardiola.

SWEDEN’S POSTAL SERVICE today began selling stamps featuring Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, drawing strong interest from fans as well as collectors.

“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 — an 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 honour,” 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. Maybe it will, Zlatan.
