With Paris Saint-Germain in Champions League action on Wednesday night, the city of Malmo has spent the last few days preparing for the return of its favourite prodigal son, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ahead of his grand homecoming, one of the striker's old stomping grounds was refreshed in his honour, with the youth of Malmo now able to follow in their local hero's footsteps by playing their football at the "Zlatan Court" -- the very pitch Ibrahimovic used to play on as a kid.

The "Turning Torso" skyscraper building in the city centre went one better in the Zlatan insignia stakes by projecting a gigantic neon blue "Z" on the top of the building -- Malmo's answer to the bat signal.
