In confirmation of what we already knew, David Beckham has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive


The 40-year-old soccer star turned sex symbol (not to mention father of four) has sent women swooning worldwide since he stormed onto the scene in his soccer shorts. We know now that he isn't just a sure thing on the field - he cuts a sinfully fine figure in a suit, and don't even get us started on those underwear campaigns...

Here, we shamelessly celebrate his sheer hotness - don't mention it, the pleasure was ours. From his early days in the spotlight to his steamy fragrance campaign with wife Victoria and his latest red carpet appearances, this is one man who just keeps getting sexier. If only he saw it that way: "I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," Beckham told People this month. "I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way." It's more than we can handle - he's as humble as he is hot.
