Swedish Table Tennis player honoured with a Chinese Stamp

Six-times world table tennis champion and 1992 Olympic gold medallist Jan-Ove Waldner has become the first living foreigner to appear on a Chinese postage stamp.

Swede Waldner is one of the best-known foreign sportsmen in China where table tennis is very popular.

He ended his career in 2012, at the age of 46, after almost 30 years and a series of world and European titles plus the gold medal at the Barcelona Olympics.
