Zlatan Ibrahimovic took a selfie with his wax sculpture

Tuesday February 10th, 2015

The wax figure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Grevin Museum in Parris is so lifelike it's pretty tough to tell it apart from the real Zlatan. 

Luckily, Ibrahimovic cleared things up with his Instagram caption: "The one to the right is made of wax and the one to the left is made of steel."

It's pretty incredible how detailed the wax figure is. The sculptor even nailed the crook in Zlatan's nose. 

There's one glaring difference between the flesh-and-blood Ibrahimovic and his wax counterpart, though. The wax one doesn't insult referees in languages they can't understand.
