The results are in! A recent study conducted by Illicitencounters.com has revealed the top 10 sexiest sport stars, and the rankings might surprise you. The study asked 2,000 UK-based women to rate 30 male sports stars on a scale of 1-10 in terms of their ‘sexiness’. So, who made the cut?
Coming in at number 10 is Irish UFC star Conor McGregor. Despite his absence from the spotlight due to a leg injury, McGregor’s new bulked-up physique has landed him a spot on the list.
Next up at number nine is Lionel Messi, the crowned best football player in the world for 2023. While he may have expected a higher ranking, Messi can still take pride in his tattoos and healthy beard.
Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy takes the eighth spot. Known for his abrupt decision to leave the PGA Tour’s policy board, McIlroy now finds himself in the spotlight for his good looks.
The first Premier League footballer to make the list is Manchester City’s Jack Grealish at number seven. Whether he’s sporting long locks or a shorter hairstyle, Grealish’s charm has certainly caught the attention of fans.
Surpassing Grealish by one place is Norwegian star Erling Haaland at number six. Known for his prolific goalscoring on the pitch, Haaland’s long, blonde locks may have swayed voters in his favor.
Coming in at number five is Cristiano Ronaldo, who must be pleased to have outshined his long-time rival Messi in this ranking. At 38 years old, Ronaldo is the oldest sports star on the list, but his dedication to his physique is undeniable.
In fourth place is Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. Despite his recent slip in the F1 rankings, Hamilton’s good looks and well-picked outfits continue to earn him recognition.
At number three is Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce, who has been making headlines for his relationship with global superstar Taylor Swift. It seems Kelce’s charm runs in the family, as his older brother Jason was also named on People Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ list.
Taking the second spot is boxing’s poster boy, Anthony Joshua. With his upcoming fight against Otto Wallin, Joshua’s nine out of 10 rating in the survey solidifies his status as one of the sexiest sport stars.
And finally, claiming the top spot is none other than Tyson Fury, the ‘Gypsy King’. Standing at an impressive 6ft 9, Fury’s hulking frame has earned him the title of the sexiest active athlete on the planet. While he’s more accustomed to making headlines in the boxing ring, this is a title Fury can certainly be proud of.
So there you have it, the top 10 sexiest sport stars according to the study. It just goes to show that talent and good looks can go hand in hand in the world of sports.
