Zlatan Ibrahimovic Is Now Playing Fortnite And He's Constantly Producing Comedy Gold

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become the latest footballer to try his hand at popular game Fortnite and well, he's brought his larger than life personality to the virtual world.

Ibrahimovic, who was sent off for slapping an opponent around the head on Monday evening, decided to play the co-op sandbox survival game with his brother.

It didn't take long for Zlatan to send viewers into hysterics when someone asked "when will Fortnite create a Zlatan character?"

His response? Brilliant.

Zlatan points out that they can not create his own character because Fornite can't afford him. If that isn't the most typical response ever, then I don't know what is.

If you want to watch the entire 17 minute Twitch stream involving Ibrahimovic, then here's a clip from YouTube. You won't regret it.


Of course, the former Manchester United and Barcelona forward isn't the player to have taken the gaming scene by storm. Dele Alli played the popular game Fornite during the Champions League semi-final, alongside teammate Kyle Walker-Peters.

To be honest, we were actually impressed with his efforts throughout, which makes us think he plays the game far too much in his spare time.

Two days later, the Tottenham midfielder streamed on Twitch for over an hour with fellow Premier League players Harry Kane and Harry Maguire as thousands watched from home.

If you like dry humour and Harry Kane claiming all the kills, as the comments section so kindly pointed out, then you'll enjoy the following clip from their session on Friday night.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the trio playing Fornite.

Who's going to play Fortnite next? We'll keep you in the loop when it happens.
