Ibrahimovic makes his film debut in Asterix & Obelix, playing the role of Roman centurion Oneofus in the latest film adaptation of the French classic.

And his performance seemingly packs a punch judging by the trailer.

Involved in a fiery battle, the former Manchester United striker can be seen using his football skills to good effect by flicking up a helmet with his feet, before delivering a devastating uppercut blow to a villain – knocking his opponent off his feet.

In another scene, a huge crowd can be seen cheering an open-armed Ibrahimovic as he reaps the applause – leaving Asterix and Obelix to look on dumbfounded.

Ibrahimovic is currently recovering after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury and underwent surgery back in May.

But this has not impacted the longevity of Ibrahimovic’s career as he dismissed retirement talk.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I am arrogant, zero fear. I’m well, I’m working every day to come back.

“You will surely see it. When I come back, I will be heard, you can count on it. I will do it with violence.

“Patience is needed, that’s the key now.”
