As we first told you in November, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been immortalized by the Swedish Postal Service (Posten) with his own line of stamps. And on Thursday, after an excruciating four-month wait, the stamps finally went on sale, obviously to roaring success.

Football fans all over the continent have been flocking to their local post offices for the first time in probably a decade. Posten’s Head of Stamps Britt-Inger Hahne told TT news agency that five million stamps have already been sold in advance.

“The French are particularly interested,” Hahne said. “One customer ordered 1,500 packages for his French friends.” (Okay, we’re not sure if that means 1,500 Facebook “friends” or actual friends, but regardless, that’s a lot of stamps!)

Zlatan himself has been overjoyed at the thought of seeing his big schnoz on the bills he will receive. In November, he said:

It’s a great honour to be on a postage stamp and I’m very happy and proud to have been chosen. I usually receive bills and they seldom have nice stamps. Maybe that will change now.”

As you can see, the Zlatan stamps all feature images of him in action with the Swedish national team, and two of them capture the iconic bicycle kick he scored against England, which won the FIFA Puskas Award in January for Goal of the Year.
