Zlatan Ibrahimovic Tells Fans 'You Are Not Zlatan, Don't Challenge The Virus'

Classic Zlatan.

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.

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."
