3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Have ever wondered why Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s body is so flexible? How can he stretch his body to any extent at will?
Well, the answer lies here. The Swedish demi-god is a black belt at Taekwondo which explains why he can stretch his legs to heights we can only dream of. He received his black belt at the age of 17 and jas continued to practice the sport ever since.
“Had he had the same focus on taekwondo he has had on football, and able to invest in the same way, it is clear that he could have been just fine,” said Leif Almö, president of the sports centre where Zlatan practised taekwondo in his youth.
To cap it off, Zlatan also received an honorary black belt from the Italian national taekwondo team back in 2010.
