Zlatan fever has hit the UK, with a look-a-like storming the pitch on Saturday only to be palmed off by the grinning Swedish football star.

During the first half of Manchester United’s game against reigning champions Leicester City, a near carbon-copy of the Swedish striker raced onto the pitch in a bid to meet his idol. 
The rangy Swede took it in good humour but did not stop to chat to the invader, instead gently pushing him away with his palm before security guards pounced on him and dragged him back to the stands. 
If you can bear the appalling soundtrack, here's a slideshow of what happened. 
Here's some fan footage taken from the stands. 
Manchester United went on to trounce Leicester with a 4-1 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Leicester imploded defensively as United racked up four goals between the 22nd and 42nd minutes.
It was a stylish display from a United side who had entered the game under pressure after losing their last two league games, against Manchester City and Watford, with Chris Smalling opening the scoring after replacing Rooney as captain.
The other goals came from Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba, who took his first United goal since his record-breaking £89 million ($115 million, 102 million euros) transfer from Juventus. 
Zlatan came close to scoring, after a fabulous pass from Pogba, but the Swede's effort on the turn just cleared the bar.
Nonetheless, he said after the match that he was pleased with the performance of both his team and himself. 
“We played well today,” he said. “Simple and with momentum”. 
He said he felt he too had played well. 
“Yes, very well today.”


Zlatan has been ‘cured’ of coronavirus: AC Milan

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been given the all-clear to end his quarantine period and return to action after testing negative for coronavirus, the Serie A club announced on Friday.

Milan confirmed in a statement that the Swedish striker had “tested negative” twice in a row, as stipulated in the protocol to be able to lift the quarantine procedure.
Ibrahimovic, 39, sounded a more triumphal note on his social media: “You are cured! The health authority says the quarantine is over, you can go out!”, he wrote on Twitter.

The announcement comes a day after Milan said Ibrahimovic had tested positive a second time for Covid-19, putting in doubt his participation in the Milan derby on October 17.
Ibrahimovic first tested positive on September 24.
The derby remains in doubt with two other Milan players and five from Inter currently in self-quarantine.
In spite of his absence, Milan have made a decent start to the season, having climbed to second in Serie A after winning all three of their games and reaching the group stages of the Europa League.
