Readers of UK gay magazine Attitude have voted openly gay Olympic diver Tom Daley as the sexiest man in the world, for the second year in a row.
The 20-year-old British sports sex symbol, who also scored the top spot in the annual poll last year, beat out English singer Shayne Ward, who took second place, and Hollywood hunk Zac Efron, who came third.
The top five also featured football icon David Beckham (4th) and buff The Only Way Is Essex reality star Dan Osborne (5th).
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me in Attitude’s HOT 100 – it means the world,” said Daley, following the announcement at Attitude’s 2014 HOT 100 party in London on Wednesday.
He also appears on the cover of the latest issue of the magazine and discussed his coming out via a YouTube video last December in an exclusive interview.

“If the video helped anyone going through something similar, then that’s great,” said Daley. “I filmed that video because I wanted to tell people in my own words.”
The London 2012 bronze medallist, who is dating Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, also commented that “everyone should have the right to marry the person they love”, and that he sees himself getting married one day.
“Family is something that has always been really important to me and yes, at some point I would love to marry and have kids,” he revealed.
Other star included in the top ten of the Attitude HOT 100 list included McFly rocker Harry Judd (6th), British diver Chris Mears (7th), Blue singer Duncan James (8th), One Direction’s Zayn Malik (9th), and British actor Russell Tovey (10th).
