'Zlatan' is a verb in Sweden now

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is probably the coolest man in the world who exists in real life.  He's so cool infact, that the Swedish dictionary now uses his name as a verb.


The definition of the word is "to dominate" and apparently orginated in Paris where fans of the striker have described themselves having 'Zlatanned' things.  As in to complete something with ease.  Examples include "I would like to Zlatan your neighbour", "that court injunction totally Zlatanned me" and "I'll Zlatan you as soon as I'm released from prison".  Just some of the many creative ways I have utilised the word in letters I've been sending to that guy from work I don't really talk to.
