Zlatan Ibrahimovic Tells Fans 'You Are Not Zlatan, Don't Challenge The Virus'
AC Milan megastar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has urged people to wear a mask and following social distancing regulations amid the growing numbers of coronavirus cases in Europe.
But rather than just give simple instructions, the super Swede decided to put his own spin on things - of course.

Ibrahimovic, who actually contracted COVID-19 a couple of weeks ago, has released a video telling viewers not to 'challenge the virus' because they're 'not Zlatan'.
Since the latest surge in coronavirus cases in Italy, the 39-year-old has now joined a local campaign that provides the latest information on the pandemic.
And in a clip posted by the Lombardy region, Ibrahimovic says: "The virus challenged me and I defeated it."

"But you are not Zlatan. Do not challenge the virus.
"Use your head, respect the rules. Social distancing and masks always. We will win."
Ibrahimovic was subsequently sidelined for a number of weeks following his positive coronavirus test.
But since his return to the team, the big man has been in immense form to help extend Milan's lead at the summit of Serie A to four points.
He even scored an unbelievable overhead kick against Udinese over the weekend to further cement himself as one of the most prolific strikers in world football - even at the ripe old age of 39.
And in typical Zlatan style, he recently teased fans by hinting of a long-awaited return to the national team.
The footballing great posted a picture of himself wearing the iconic yellow jersey of Sweden with the caption: "Long time no see."
