Sweden's postal service on Thursday 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 honor," 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.
