Just give him Sports Personality of the Year already

The Man United forward was present in Cardiff as Joshua defeated Carlos Takam in the tenth round and provided a classic one-liner in the aftermath of the fight.

When asked if he fancied stepping into the ring with Joshua, Zlatan joked that he only wanted to learn from the boxer but if Joshua wanted to see some ‘Bruce Lee skills’ then the enigmatic Swede would happily oblige.

The 36-year-old has a black belt in taekwondo.
