Pretty neat, shows how much he means to that country as I would’ve never imagined an athlete or anyone but an important political person or president being on currency.

The irony, he is hitting backhand on those coins...

I think it is poor taste to do these kind of things for athletes that are still active.

The city of Malmo raised a statue of Zlatan a few months ago outside the stadium. Then last week, Zlatan announced he had bought 25% of another club and was going to help them become the best club in Sweden. People now not very happy with statue...

Judging by the grip, he is preparing a slice...
Judging by the swing it's topspin BH, his slice takeback is more horizontal, and swing goes more out-wide. Anyway that isn't my point at all, not to go off-topic, his bread and butter was his FH, I guess coin makers only went for good artistic impression, not the meaning.

Well deserved for the GOAT of all talents, all they need to do now is change the first 5 letters of the country from Switz to Fed.

Nah it looks like his trademark slice BH break point return.

I am outvoted by MTF experts, still begging to differ.
