It's not every day you come face-to-face with your own lookalike.
But that's exactly what happened on Saturday when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was confronted by his doppelgänger.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was forced to fend off the culprit after the Manchester United supporter forced his way onto the pitch.
Ibrahimovic was approached by the star-struck fan as the Swede celebrated Manchester United's fourth goal in their 4-1 win over Leicester City.
The 34-year-old striker appeared to greet the opportunistic fan with remarkable cool as Old Trafford stewards rushed to apprehend him.
The fan appeared to have adopted Ibrahimovic's famous ponytail hair and pencil-thin moustache in an attempt to look like his idol.
Despite the surprise interruption to the game, Ibrahimovic seemed to be largely unfazed by the sycophantic fan.
Ibrahimovic jokingly pushed the pitch invader in the face as Manchester United prepared to restart the game.
Security eventually accosted the fan, wrestling him to the ground to the amusement of Jesse Lingard and the Manchester United striker.
Manchester United got their season back on track at Old Trafford with 4-1 win over Premier League champions Leicester City.
While Ibrahimovic failed to get on the scoresheet, fellow summer signing Paul Pogba scored his first goal for the club since becoming the world's most expensive player.
The win move United up to third in the Premier League following back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Watford.
