Ibrahimovic has won the Italian league twice with Milan and is being praised through several posts on Instagram.

"Eras end, legends live forever," one writes to an edited image where a Zlatan from his last spell at the club celebrates a goal with a younger version of himself.

To pictures from yesterday's tribute they write "Thank you, Zlatan. See you again... if we're lucky" and under a picture of a crying Zlatan: "Don't cry because it's over, be glad it zlataned."

The clubs tune in

PSG and Manchester United also join the chorus of tributes:

"The only one of its kind," United wrote on Twitter, where Ibrahimovic won the Europa League. The capital club from France did not want to be worse: "A career worthy of a king. Congratulations, Zlatan! We hope to see you soon at the Parc des Princes"

From the Swedish side, he is praised by, among others, national team colleague Emil Forsberg.

"The greatest ever," the midfielder wrote on Instagram.

"The football boots on the shelf but still in Swedish sports history and in the hearts of the Swedish people. Zlatan is not only one of Sweden's but also one of the world's most successful football players of all time. A Zvensk pride," writes Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson.

"One of the finest sporting careers ever"

The Royal Family also joins the chorus of tributes.
