Giddy Swedish Police Queue Up For Picture With Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Giddy Swedish Police Queue Up For Picture With Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It’s unusual when policemen and women break character to show their human side on the job.

Or at least that’s what we’re used to seeing at football matches around the world.

Security would have been ramped up at every international game since the atrocities in Paris last Friday night where terrorist attacks left 129 people dead.

But it was also nice to see Swedish police take their chance to get a selfie with national hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic last week.

Usually so stern-faced on the job, the officers couldn’t contain their excitement as the super Swede made his way off the team bus.

And you can get a better picture of just how delighted they were to see Zlatan when a giddy female officer ran over and realised who they were standing next to.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker was only too happy to have his picture with them – and was even fine with taking the selfie when they realised the officer’s arm wasn’t long enough to capture them all.

Zlatan has since gone on to become even more of a national hero after scoring a penalty in the first leg of their 2-1 Euro 2016 playoff first leg win over Denmark last week before scoring two in the 2-2 return leg draw last night.

There was also an entertaining moment post-match with Zlatan swarmed by his excited team-mates as he spoke to Swedish TV pitch-side:
