Zlatan Ibrahimovic met Pope Francis today at the Vatican in Rome, and posted pictures on his social media accounts to celebrate the occasion.

He posted on his personal files a picture showing him with the Pope with the caption “Peace and love.” As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the Swedish striker turned to him after the salute and said, “I brought you something and I wanted to give it to you personally.” Ibrahimovic handed him a copy of his book Adrenalina and added: “This is part of my story, it contains a description of my life and a small message.”

The Pope replied that he would willingly read it and returned the gift by handing him the book Sports According to Pope Francis. Zlatan also gave him a signed shirt and asked Pope Francis: “Do you like Milan? With that I do a little magic on the pitch.” The Pope smiled and thanked him for the gift.
