Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic (10) is being honored with his own postal stamp in his native country.

STOCKHOLM (AP) - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has long been considered sports royalty in Sweden. Like the country's real king, he's now even getting his own postal stamp.

The Swedish postal service said Monday it will introduce a stamp featuring Ibrahimovic on March 27.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker, who is nominated for the Puskas goal of the year award for his bicycle kick against England, said he was honored by the stamp.

He said he ''gets mainly bills and they usually don't have nice stamps, but maybe that will change now.''

The 32-year-old was the French league's top scorer last year. On Friday, he will spearhead Sweden's attack in the World Cup playoff against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal.
