Can we love Zlatan any more than we already do? Yes, yes we can.

The Swedish superstar netted after just 72 seconds during PSG's clash with Caen before taking his shirt off in celebration and revealing a whole host of new tattoos.

Ibra had the names of 50 starving people temporarily tattooed onto his body as a show of support for the United Nations World Food Programme.

The WFP is responsible for helping 805 million people throughout the world tackle hunger - watch the video explaining the stunt starring Zlatan below.

Ibrahimovic was booked after only two minutes for removing his shirt as he celebrated scoring the opening goal in his side's 2-2 draw with Caen.

As he did, the tattooed star revealed several new designs, a collection of signatures which he has since shed light on.

"Saturday evening against Caen, when I took off my shirt, everyone asked what these new tattoos were," Ibrahimovic told PSG's official website.

"I had 15 temporary tattoos on my body. They were the names of real people who suffer from starvation in the world.

"Even if the tattoos are gone today, these people are still there. There are 805 million starving people in the world. I want you to see them, through me, to help the World Food Programme."
