David Beckham has topped heat magazine's inaugural '101 Hottest Hunks in the World list 2012'
"He's got the lot - talent, style, sex appeal, charisma. Women adore him, men want to be him, and we're absolutely thrilled that he has topped our poll," Contactmusic quoted heat editor Lucie Cave as saying.
David, who raises four children with wife Victoria Beckham, beat a host of famous hunks to the top spot, including Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper, who came second, third and fourth respectively.
Other heartthrobs to make the top 10 include Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Pattinson, Tom Hardy, Johnny Depp and Zac Efron.
