Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed whom he thinks is the greatest player of all time, and shockingly, that player is not himself. 

The Swedish striker was uncharacteristically humbled when he met the former Brazil striker Ronaldo at Paris Saint-Germain's clash with Nice on Saturday. 

Zlatan posed for a picture with Ronaldo, who was a guest of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Ibrahimovic posted the picture on Facebook with the message: "This was the best thing that happened last night. The best player of all times, Ronaldo. The Phenomenon."

In a previous interview with Sports Illustrated, Ibrahimovic admitted Ronaldo, who won the Ballon d'Or in 1997 and 2002, was his "idol" and a "complete" player.
