{{editprotected}} Please change the spelling of "Bjorn Borg" to "Björn Borg" and add ", former Swedish tennis player". Adding the country and/or profession would not be a substantial change, I believe and it would also help readers to know who is Björn Borg.

I only found one place to add the diacritic on the name: the attribution on the pull-quote. There was already a diacritic on the name where it occurred in the article body, and there shouldn't be a diacritic on the name in either of the two source titles that use it because those titles did not use the diacritic.

I'm not comfortable with the addition of words explaining who Borg is (although I agree the article should have explained that). --Pi zero (talk) 13:19, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

@Pi zero: Zlatan to retire from international football
In 2014, Ibrahimović was placed second on a list of Swedish sport stars, behind tennis player and five-time Wimbledon winner Björn Borg. Ibrahimović said in reaction, "[...] to finish second is like finishing last."
Is it okay now?

The issue here is with changing the text of the article.

Since no other admin has involved themselves in this over the past several months, I've switched off the editprotected tag. --Pi zero (talk) 14:56, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

@Pi zero: this is not a substantial edit that he is just a Swedish tennis player so that it does not look like some random person on the street commenting.
