Jan-Ove Waldner has become the first living foreigner to appear on a Chinese postage stamp. The 6 time world table tennis champion and 1992 Olympic gold medallist commented, “There is an enormous demand for the stamps. They’ve already sold three million and they have 13 million more to sell. This is huge, it doesn’t get much bigger than this in China. It’s an honor to be on a stamp.” Waldner who originates from Sweden, is a legend in China where table tennis is the most popular sport.
