Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals his ultimate workout tunes, including 'Ice Ice Baby'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic enjoys listening to Vanilla Ice while working out. Is that the secret to his success?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still dominating defences, scoring an impressive 26 goals thus far in his debut season at Manchester United despite being positively antiquated by football standards.

Unfortunately, there's no secret to the longevity of his career. The Swedish powerhouse, 35, keeps himself limber with a gruelling mix of hard graft, intense training, precision nutrition and countless hours of practise.

Should you wish to replicate his results, Ibrahimovic has rather helpfully provided a window into the finer points of his fitness regime by revealing the Spotify playlist he usually cranks up while he works out.

The hand-picked list features a fairly standard mix of classic rap and Swedish hip-hop bangers, songs that apparently help him focus on strength and power.

However, there is also room in there for the likes of Vanilla Ice ("Ice Ice Baby"), Aswad ("Shine") and "Bad Boys," otherwise known as the theme tune from Cops.

It's reassuring to know that, amid all the bravado, Ibrahimovic is just as susceptible to cheese as the rest of us mere mortals.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
