Zlatan Ibrahimovic not only scored two goals and provided an assist for Paris Saint-Germain away at Nice this evening - he also did his good deed for the day.

The Sweden international was substituted in the 77th minute of the match - with PSG having safely secured all three points - and decided to make a young lad’s night by handing him his shirt.

Zlatan took off his jersey and handed it to a steward while pointing to the youngster in the crowd. The boy looked absolutely delighted to land his hands on the shirt of the world-class forward and you can see the footage by scrolling a little further down this page.

Ibrahimovic’s brace means he has now scored 18 goals in his last 18 matches for PSG and Sweden - per Squawka - which is some feat when you consider he turned 34 two months ago.

Not only that but Zlatan also became PSG’s all-time leading Ligue 1 scorer (on 86 goals) with tonight’s double.

Zlatan is improving with age

Zlatan recently told reporters “I am like wine, I improve with age” - per Goal - and it’s difficult to disagree with that assessment when he produces such eye-catching performances.

There was a time when Zlatan was widely regarded as one of the most overrated players in Europe - mainly because of his performances in the latter stages of the Champions League - but that’s no longer the case and rightly so.

He will eventually be remembered as a striker who gave a huge amount of joy to football fans across the globe - but the colourful Swede still has a few years left in him before he hangs up his boots.
