Football star Zlatan Ibrahimović strips for famine awareness, gets suspended for taking his kit off

He’s got a head for football, and a body and heart for the 805 million people worldwide who are suffering from hunger. Swedish footballer and Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimović peeled off his jersey after he scored a goal in a French League 1 match on Saturday Feb 14, revealing 50 names temporarily tattooed on his body, of people from around the world whose lives are threatened by hunger and malnutrition as a result of war, conflict and disasters. The stunt was part of the "805 Million Names" campaign by the United Nation’s World Food Programme, the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger, which reaches over 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. Alas, Ibrahimović was booked for “unsportsmanlike behaviour” and suspended one game, which he said was totally worth it. PSG manager Laurent Blanc, however, was not amused by Ibrahimović’s action and has warned him not to do it again in their upcoming Champions League match against Chelsea.
