Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never been one to doubt his ability or self-worth.

Back in December the Paris Saint-Germain star was left furious after coming second to Bjorn Borg in a poll of Sweden's greatest ever sportsman - the 33-year-old said that he should have come first, second, third, fourth and fifth.

On Tuesday the striker, who has 16 goals in 23 matches this season, attended the Musee Grevin in Paris to witness the unveiling of his waxwork likeness.

"It's an incredible feeling to get a statue at the Musee Grevin," said Ibrahimovic, who was part of the Uefa Team of the Year.

"The statue looks very focused, just like myself out there on the pitch. I can only be grateful for the fantastic job done. I am very proud to get this sort of recognition, especially as a Swede."

However, in true Ibra style, he decided that a waxwork wasn't enough, he'd like to go one further...

"The next step? I don't know. Maybe replacing the Eiffel Tower with an Ibrahimovic statue..."
