Definitive Proof David Beckham Is The Sexiest Man Alive

People has spoken!

The magazine has released its 30th anniversary 'Sexiest Man Alive' issue, crowning none other than David Beckham as this year's winner.

The "humble British heartthrob," as People describes him, succeeds Chris Hemsworth, who graced the issue's cover last year.

And while the 40-year-old soccer icon and father of four has been a sex symbol for decades, he tells People he's not sure he's deserving of the title.

"I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," he says. "I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way."

However, he does think the award is a "huge honour" and says he's "very pleased to accept."

We say, well deserved? And in case you need convincing, here's definitive proof Becks is, indeed, the sexiest man alive:
