Cristiano Ronaldo voted sexiest athlete of 2012
The Portuguese International has topped the poll carried out by People Magazine to get the best-looking player, and interestingly he was the only footballer in the list.
As quoted in People, the soccer stud, 27, gets his kicks playing forward for Real Madrid and leading the Portuguese national team. Since joining the Spanish squad in 2009, his speedy footwork and game-changing free kicks crush records (ones he set in the first place) have made him the higest-paid footballer in the world. We’re pretty sure that’s why Ronaldo has 51 million Facebook fans and 14 million Twitter followers – and not because of those jaw-dropping Emporio Armani underwear ads.
In a star-studded list, the 27-year-old trumped againsthe likes of US Open tennis champion Andy Murray, swimming posterboy Ryan Lochte, Miami Heat and NBA basketballer LeBron James and New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
The list included players like Victor Cruz, Nathan Adrian, Henrik Lundqvist, Adam Scott, Tim Tebow, Andy Murray, Lebron James and Ryan Lochte.
