Swedish royals meet Zlatan in Paris

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia met the star striker during a state visit to France, where 25 Swedish companies are also taking part with the hope of signing new business contracts.

Sweden's labor market, industry and energy ministers are also accompanying the royal couple, on visits to the French Parliament, the Swedish school and the Paris Saint Germain Foundation at the Parc de Princes arena in Paris, which is also the home turf of Swedish soccer superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The royal couple met the soccer dynamo around lunchtime, and the King and Ibrahimovic were pictured shaking hands.

The royals' visit is scheduled to last for four days.
