Starting with the big guy, the Swedish FA commissioned for a statue of the national team’s record goalscorer this year.
Unsurprisingly, Zlatan was quite chuffed to unveil a huge statue of himself shirtless in his hometown of Malmo, Sweden.
Artist Peter Linde was the mastermind behind the 8.9 feet tall statue, which took four years to build.
Although a Malmo football fan recently vandalised it following Zlatan’s decision to buy a share in rival club, Hammarby.
