There is such a wide variety of competitive sports being played around the world; it would only make sense that each game had its own MVP as well as its MAP (most attractive players). Of course, it would only make sense that we would compile a list of the most handsome athletes across the globe.
Tiger Woods - Golf
Despite all the controversy and disappointment over the past few years, golf forever changed in 1997 when Tiger Woods dismantled Augusta National. Seventy-nine wins on tour, and 14 majors are both good for second all-time, but that doesn’t matter because the man elevated the sport of golf and made it what it is today.
Although he is famous for golfing, womanizer Woods has made his way into the tabloid magazines' dozens of times. Simply put, there will never be another Tiger Woods, as he is more than deserving of his title as the greatest golfer of all-time.
Joe Namath - NFL
Joe Namath, AKA "Broadway Joe," started in the American Football League (AFL) before transitioning into the NFL during the ‘60s and ‘70s. What made the quarterback so unique was his incredible charisma and charm. He helped the New York Jets win their first and only Super Bowl in 1969, which helped turn him into a household name.
In 1985, Namath was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an honor he earned with flying colors. His stats included more than 1,850 successful passes, with an average 50% success rate. That’s over 27,663 yards throughout his career - though, it's safe to say that fans tuned into games to see him smile!
Magic Johnson- NBA
The most revolutionary player in the history of the sport, Magic Johnson’s uniqueness will have him at or near the top of these lists for decades to come. With size and vision that the game had never seen before, Johnson took the league by storm, heading the attack for the electric “Showtime” Lakers.
Players like LeBron, Tracy McGrady, Penny Hardaway, and most recently, Giannis Antetokounmpo all resemble bits and pieces of Magic’s style. Still, the league may never see a floor general with Magic's size and leadership again.
Greg Maddux - MLB
Maddux was a dominant pitcher throughout the ’90s, winning four Cy Young Awards in a row from 1991 to 1994. Perhaps even more impressively, Maddux is the most accomplished fielding pitcher in league history.
In a 2002 episode of the TV series "Do-Over," the main character lost a baseball game to a young Greg Maddux, who was portrayed by Shad Hart. In total, the gorgeous pitcher collected 18 Gold Gloves during a career that made stops in Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
Julius Erving - NBA
Dr. J might be remembered more for his nickname and beautiful head of hair, but the 16-time ABA/NBA All-Star was also one of the best ballplayers in league history. He stuffed the stat sheet in all aspects.
For his career, Erving averaged 24.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 4.2 assists per game. Dr. J also shot a fantastic 50.6-percent from the floor. A true entertainer, Erving accomplished everything with a flair the league had never seen before.
Boris Becker - Tennis
Becker, the German former world No. 1 pro tennis player, is also one of the sport's most handsome players. He is a six-time major singles champion and was the youngest Wimbledon men’s champion when he was 17. In his career, he won 3 Wimbledon titles, 13 Masters Series titles, five elite indoor titles.
He is the only player to have won all 3 Open era season end finals ATP Tour Finals, WCT Finals, and Grand Slam Cup. Becker also won the Olympic gold medal in doubles. From 2013 to 2016, he coached the legend that is Novak Djokovic.
Tony Romo - NFL
Come on now, how could anyone look away from this smile?! Along with being one of the best NFL quarterback passers of all time, Tony Romo is also a heartthrob. The accomplished quarterback has recently wrapped up a thirteen-year career with the Dallas Cowboys, which led him to four Pro Bowls wins in 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2014.
Romo has accumulated over 34,000 passing yards throughout his NFL career and managed to receive an incredible passer rating of 97.1, almost the highest in the world. Romo has since transitioned into becoming the lead color analyst for CBS Sports, after suffering a back injury which caused him to lose some of his abilities on the field permanently.
Lleyton Hewitt - Tennis
Up next is the beautiful Australian former world no. 1, who in November 2001 became the youngest male ever ranked no. 1 in the world in singles, aged at just 20.
Hewitt also won the 2001 US Open and 2002 Wimbledon men’s singles titles, the 2000 US Open men’s doubles title, back-to-back Tennis Masters Cup titles (2001 and 2002), and the Davis Cup with Australia in 1999 and 2003.
Kevin Durant - NBA
Kevin Durant is uniquely phenomenal in a multitude of ways. Nearing the 7-foot mark, Durant has ball-handling capabilities and the shooting prowess of a guard. He can score from anywhere on the court - demonstrating skill only seen among the elite players in the league's history.
Additionally, Durant's spider-like wingspan and rare athletic ability have helped him become an outstanding defensive player. This past year, Durant captured his first NBA Championship with the Golden State Warriors. Assuming he wins a few more, there's a real chance he could finish as one of the ten best players of all-time.
Thomas Müller - Soccer
There is one trait in soccer that cannot be taught, and that is the art of scoring goals. Thomas Müller has mastered this trait, as the young German is seemingly always in the right place to help the ball into the back of the net. Müller has won 12 domestic trophies with Bayern Munich, a Champions League, and a World Cup.
His unorthodox style of play may seem weird to many, but it is hard to argue with the results. Müller has scored 157 goals for Bayern Munich and has added another 36 for his country, including five in the 2014 World Cup.
Antoine Griezmann - Soccer
He's young, he's gorgeous, and he's here to stay! Griezmann has come bursting onto the scene, piling up goals in La Liga while helping lead Atlético to the Champions League final a season ago. He has tallied 20 goals in each of the past three seasons and is well on his way to a fourth this year.
His play for France in Euro 2016 caught the eye of soccer fans around the world as he led the tournament with six goals and took home the award for the best player. In 2016, he finished third in the Ballon d’Or voting behind only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Stan Wawrinka - Tennis
The Swiss sensation who reached a career-high Association of Tennis Professionals world No. Three singles ranking for the first time in 2014 is also one of the cutest players on the tennis court.
So far, he has won three Grand Slam titles at the 2014 Australian Open, 2015 French Open, and 2016 US Open, where he defeated the world No. 1 player in all three finals; and an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title at the Monte-Carlo Masters in 2014.
David Alaba - Soccer
One of the best young players in the world is also one of the cutest. David Alaba is just 24 and has won a plethora of trophies with the “German Giants.” His ability to play multiple positions on the field makes Alaba an individual player.
Despite being so young, Alaba is already the best left-back and should that title for the foreseeable future.
Michael Jordan - NBA
Technically, he was nearly flawless. Jordan was an intelligent player that worked hard at his craft, developing perfect footwork and the deadliest fade-away jump-shot in the game’s history. His list of accolades is nearly unparalleled. A five-time MVP, six-time NBA Champion, 14-time All-Star, Defensive Player of the Year, and Slam Dunk Champion, Jordan was an unstoppable force on the hardwood.
Were you expecting anything different from the NBA heartthrob? His Airness reigns supreme over the basketball world and is in contention for the most celebrated athlete (across all sports) of all-time. Equally impressive on the offensive and defensive sides of the floor, Jordan’s sheer dominance throughout the ’90s may never be seen again.
Aaron Rodgers - NFL
It's not easy to follow the footsteps of Brett Favre for three years and somehow manage to shine yourself, but that's exactly what Aaron Rodgers did when he became the lead quarterback of the Green Bay Packers in 2005. Since then, the talented quarterback and his ocean eyes have led his team to a Super Bowl championship and was named Associated Press Athlete of the Year in 2011.
Rodgers holds a leading career passer rating of 102.7 and reached as high as 122.5 in the 2011 season. Rodgers also holds the record for most consecutive passes without an interception, which currently stands at a whopping 402 passes. He is considered by many to be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, with still some record-breaking time to go before the end of his career.
Carl Edwards - NASCAR
Even though Edwards retired from racing in 2017 at the age of 37 - he can drive our car anytime he likes! In 2015 when the gorgeous racer won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500 at the Darlington Raceway, he celebrated by holding up the checkered flag.
He was also known for performing his famous backflip off of his car every time he won a race. In 2009, he married Katherine Downey, and the couple has two children together.
Randy Johnson – MLB
“The Big Unit” seems like a nickname that is hard to live up to, but Randy Johnson at 6ft 8in is more than equal to the task. With a nickname like that, it's hard to take your eyes off of him! Johnson played major league baseball for an astounding 22 seasons on six different teams but mostly for the Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks.
He is famous for being the fifth most successful left-handed baseball player of all time and for having the second-most career strikeouts (4,875) in MLB history.
Jimmie Johnson - NASCAR
With his dough eyes and puppy-dog face, Johnson is the third stock car racer to win seven Cup championships. Jimmie Johnson was born in El Cajon, California, in 1975 and entered the world of racing after graduating high school. In 2001, Johnson signed with Hendricks Racing, and since then has seen many wins to his name.
He has won seven Cup championships, most impressively five of them being consecutive wins from 2006-2010, becoming the first driver to do so. To date, Johnson has won 86 races, started in the pole position 35 times, finished in the top five 221 times, and in the top ten in 342 races.
Isiah Thomas - NBA
The leader of the Bad Boys, Isiah Thomas, always played with a chip on his shoulder. Thomas was lightning quick with the ball and was an excellent shooter from the outside.
However, what he will be most remembered for is his tremendous ability as a leader. One of the original floor generals, Thomas, had an innate ability to know when to get the ball to his teammates versus getting himself going offensively.
Gustavo Kuerten - Tennis
“Guga” is now a retired former World No. 1 from Brazil. He has won the French Open singles title a total of three times (1997, 2000, and 2001), and was also the Tennis Masters Cup champion in 2000. However, Kuerten suffered numerous injuries, leading him to miss several tournaments in the years between 2002 and 2005.
After a few failed comebacks, he officially retired in May 2008, in his career he has won 20 singles and eight doubles titles. Although he is retired, his hair game is still going strong, and we're not complaining!
Julius Peppers - NFL
A complete stud of an athlete - Peppers played for both the North Carolina football and basketball teams. After finishing college, Peppers decided to focus primarily on the gridiron.
That ended up being the right choice, as he’s collected a career total of 154.5 sacks and will go down as one of the best pass rushers in NFL history. In 2009, Peppers donated half a million dollars to a scholarship program that supports black students at his alma mater of North Carolina.
David Robinson - NBA
Standing at an impressive 7 ft. 1, the incredibly handsome David Robinson is hard to miss. Before Tim Duncan, the Spurs were led by ‘the Admiral," nicknamed for his service with the U.S Navy. The two-time Olympic Gold medal winner is considered by many to be one of the best centers in college basketball, as well as NBA history.
Robinson’s muscular build would make you believe he was carved from granite. From 1989 to 2003, Robinson received 10 All-Star appearances, 10 All-NBA nods, a scoring title, an MVP Trophy, and two NBA championship rings.
Jeff Gordon- NASCAR
Jeff Gordon is consistently ranked as one of the best stock car drivers. Gordon started racing at the ripe age of five in quarter midgets. By age 6, he had already won 36 races, setting five records along the way. Known as the “Kid” at the start of his NASCAR career, he started professionally racing at age 16. By age 20, he became the youngest person ever to win the USAC Silver Crown.
Not only does he have a hunky, Tom Cruise look, but he has also brought a much-needed freshness to the sport. Nowadays, Gordon isn’t too far from NASCAR racing and can be found as a NASCAR broadcaster for Fox Sports.
Manuel Neuer - Soccer
Neuer is the only goalie on this list as he is, without a doubt, the best keeper in the world. In 184 league games, Neuer has kept a clean sheet in 101 of them. He had won four Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich, a Champions League, and was awarded the best goalkeeper when Germany won the World Cup in 2014.
Neuer has taken the term “sweeper-keeper” to a new level as he often plays extremely far up the field. His ability to play the ball with his feet makes him a unique talent, but his reflexes in the net are what separate him from the rest.
Peyton Manning - NFL
No quarterback was more beloved and successful than Peyton Manning when he was at his prime. This fierce, striking, NFL player is considered one of the greatest of all time and played for both the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos. Manning won 14 Pro Bowl and two Super Bowls throughout his career and currently holds the record for most passing touchdowns and most passing yards in one season.
By 2009, Manning was one of the most recognizable figures in sports and continued to become the oldest quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl until Tom Brady surpassed this record. Manning has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and will likely find himself in the NFL's as-well.
Rafael Nadal - Tennis
Of course, Rafael Nadal makes this list. The man’s a walking legend...and a pretty handsome guy if you ask us. Nadal started his professional tennis career in 2001 and so far has earned over 78 million dollars, has 69 career titles to his name with 14 Grand Slam Singles Titles: 1 Australian, 9 French, 2 US Open, and 2 Wimbledon.
Talk about impressive. After his 9th French Open title, Nadal became known as “The King of Clay” because he dominated all others on the clay court. Despite injury bouts, Nadal will go on to win more titles and climb up the world rankings.
LeBron James - NBA
In the last 50 years of sports, no player has had more pressure to succeed than LeBron James. Entering the league as the “Chosen One,” the gorgeous and talented James was expected to light the league on fire with his enormous body and freakish athleticism. He’s fulfilled those expectations, and then some. Although the majority of his career has been spent donning No. 23, two of his three NBA titles have come while wearing No. 6, justifying this distinction.
The four-time MVP is well on his way to breaking the league’s all-time scoring record and remains the NBA’s top player 15 years into his career. With no signs of slowing down, the longevity James has sustained unprecedented.
Usain Bolt - Sprinter
As far as everybody knows, Usain Bolt is 6’5” in height, has dark brown eyes, and is an overall heartthrob. Usain Bolt's greatest achievement is when he got the title as the fastest man in the world and got six gold medals in Olympic History.
Three of those gold medals were from the 2008 Olympic games held in Beijing, China. In terms of the history of sprinters, Bolt is the highest-paid athlete!
Mike Trout - MLB
The young, gorgeous, and promising center field Trout has never finished worse than fourth in AL MVP voting. In 2019, he signed a 12-year, $426 million contract with the Angels, the richest contract in the history of North American Sports.
It may be early in his career, but the Angels’ center fielder is on his way to pass many of the game’s all-time greats.
Scottie Pippen - NBA
Every great player needs the “Robin” to his “Batman.” Fortunately for Michael Jordan, his “Robin” also happens to be one of the greatest players ever to play the game - the gorgeous Scottie Pippen.
Pippen was a monster on the defensive end and yet manages to do it with such grace. He possessed the ability to guard multiple positions effectively. His unselfishness on offense also complemented Jordan well. Pippen mostly played within the flow of the offense. With that said, Pippen could score the basketball when called upon to do so.
Wayne Gretzky - NHL
Hockey’s premier playmaker, Gretzky, dazzled fans with his precise puck handling and penchant for setting up teammates. Gretzky has made several appearances on TV, including "Dance Fever" celebrity judge. The gorgeous hockey player acted in a dramatic role alongside Victor Newman in "The Young and the Restless" in 1981. In 2016, he even appeared in a cameo on a Christmas episode of "The Simpsons."
The NHL has only seen four 200-point seasons by a single player - of course, Gretzky did it all four times. In fact, “The Great One” has nine of the top 11 scoring seasons in NHL history. Accompanied with his four Stanley Cup victories, Gretzky is the most accomplished player in league history.
Greg Louganis - Diving
Although he may look like a soap-opera star, Greg Louganis is one of the people on this list who quickly became something of a career Olympian. He had massive amounts of success at the games in 1976, 1984, and 1988.
The gorgeous diver has used his fame to become an activist for not only the LGBT community but for those who have been diagnosed with HIV and AIDS. Since he's started his volunteer work, Louganis was famously diagnosed HIV positive himself.
Dwyane Wade - NBA
It’s challenging to overlook the impressive resume Wade has accrued over his 15 years in the league. With three championships and the title of the best player in Miami Heat history, Wade has proven that he can perform and win in a multitude of situations.
In his athletic prime, his slashing ability bore a strong resemblance to a 6-foot-4 version of Michael Jordan. As he has grown older, he’s adjusted his game to stay relevant - a prominent trait for an all-time great player.
Marat Safin - Tennis
Safin is a Russian politician, retired professional tennis player and, all-around hunk. He first achieved the Association of Tennis Professionals world No. 1 singles ranking back in 2000. If you know, follow tennis, then you remember him for his emotional outbursts and sometimes quite a fiery temper on court. Safin is also the older brother of former world No. 1 WTA player, Dinara Safina.
They are the first-ever and only brother-sister tandem in tennis history to both achieved No. 1 rankings. Then just in 2016, Safin became the first Russian tennis player inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
John Cena - WWE
As of 2018, Cena has lifted 25 notable titles, topped the bill at WrestleMania five times, and been crowned world champion on 16 different occasions. Cena’s achievements also include two Royal Rumble victories, three Superstar of the Year Slammy Awards, and a Money in the Bank ladder-match trophy.
Cena's good looks and body have helped him make his way into Hollywood. He’s guested on "Psych," "Parks and Recreation," and Saturday Night Live. And in 2010, the gorgeous star added TV host to his resume when he presented reality show "American Grit."
Michael Phelps - Competitive Swimming
Michael Phelps dominates the water completely. The Olympic champion's career spans five different Olympic Games and has broken the world record 39 times. Of those, 29 records were individual, and the rest were relay races.
His most outstanding accomplishment that is currently unbreakable is his accumulation of 28 medals. The next closes are 18 medals, so clearly, he is still pretty ahead. With his athletic body, standing at six-foot-four, he is widely considered one of the most handsome swimmers in the sport!
Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior - Soccer
The international heartthrob, Neymar, appeared on the cover of "Time" magazine in February 2013 - the first Brazilian athlete to do so. Since he arrived in Barcelona in 2013, Neymar has become one of the most prominent athletes in the world. He was the poster boy of the 2014 World Cup and has become Brazil’s next big star. On the field, he has won two La Liga titles and a Champions League in 2015, which helped Barcelona clinch the treble.
Neymar is the only player in the history of the European Championship, now the Champions League, to score a goal in both quarter-final games, both semi-finals and the final in the same year.
Denny Hamlin- NASCAR
A lot of stock car racers get their start racing go-karts at a young age, and the gorgeous Denny Hamlin was one of them. He started racing go-karts at only seven years old. Hamlin first gained recognition when he won Rookie of the Year at the 2006 Spring Cup and qualified for NASCAR Playoffs. Currently, Hamlin is a full-time racer in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
He has been credited as one of the most consistent drivers, and he has won at least one race every year from 2006 to 2017 Cup seasons and another one in 2019. In our opinion, he's one of NASCAR's best-looking racers!
Kobe Bryant - NBA
Although we lost him to a tragic helicopter accident in early 2020 - but Kobe Bryant will forever stay one of the most handsome and talented players of all-time. He wasn’t quite as athletically gifted as the other greats. He didn’t have the speed of Jordan, the size of Magic, or the strength of LeBron, but he made up for it by being the most skilled player in history.
From immaculate footwork to impossible fadeaway jumpers, Kobe Bryant honestly had every basketball skill you would want in a player.
Sergio Ramos - Soccer
Sergio Ramos may have the face of a model, but he also is one of the highest-ranked defenders on the soccer field. Ramos helped Real Madrid to a second Champions League title in three years. The central defender has made over 500 appearances for Real Madrid and has won 11 trophies with the club. On the international level, Ramos was a crucial part of the Spanish teams that dominated soccer from 2008-2012.
His goals in Madrid’s last two Champions League final appearances will be remembered in Madrid forever. His 93rd-minute header sent the final to extra time in 2014 before Madrid beat crosstown rival Atlético.
Shaun White - Snowboarder
If rhythm plays a vital role in becoming a world-class athlete, Shaun White should be a source of his material as a musician, and it should push him to always be at his best as a professional snowboarder and skateboarder. As an Olympian, Shaun White has won 3 gold medals, holding the most number by a snowboarder.
He’s won ten Espy Awards and has earned more gold medals in the X-Games than any competitor. Shaun White plays the guitar for Bad Things, an electronic rock band. He also makes appearances in television and films such as "Friends with Benefits."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson – WWE
The Rock had one of the most illustrious careers out of any wrestler, winning a staggering 17 championships. However, it has been the gorgeous Dwayne Johnson’s exploration into Hollywood, which has taken his career to the next level. In 2002, he made his feature film debut in the "Mummy" spinoff, "The Scorpion King."
Since then, Johnson has become one of the most sought-after movie stars on the planet, having featured heavily in The Fast and The Furious franchise, amongst many other blockbusters.
Leonardo Bonucci - Soccer
This Italian God was bound to make this list, aside from being one of the sport's most gorgeous players, Juventus's defender has helped the team dominate Italian football at an unparalleled level.
Leonardo Bonucci is the perfect Italian center back with his never say die approach and passing ability, which allows Juventus to deploy him in several ways. Bonucci has won Serie A six times in his career, five with his current club, and helped Juventus to a Champions League final appearance in 2015.
Russell Wilson - NFL
NFL Rookie of the Year, and has starred in two Super Bowls in his short career, winning Super Bowl XLVIII. Despite only being around with the Seattle Seahawks since 2012, he has already recorded the most wins by an NFL quarterback through sevens seasons. He has a legendary passer rating of over 100.
The striking NFL star has made his way onto the pop culture scene and has appeared on many talk show hosts as well as the 2015 film, "Entourage." Wilson is married to singer Ciara; the two began dating and 2015, and by 2016 the couple announced they were engaged announced. If his last few years have been any indication, it looks like Wilson is going to become one of the most accomplished NFL quarterbacks of all time.
Cristiano Ronaldo - Soccer
Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the biggest names on this list. Not only is he one of the world's most celebrated soccer players - but he is also considered one of the most beautiful athletes in the world.
He won his fourth Ballon d'Or, led Real Madrid to their second Champions League title in three years, and scored the winning penalty kick in the final. In total, Ronaldo has won three Champions League trophies and countless domestic titles.
Andy Roddick - Tennis
Good ol’ Andy became a Grand Slam singles champion when he won the title back at the 2003 US Open, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the final. Roddick is the most recent North American male player to win a Grand Slam singles event, the most recent to reach the top ranking, and the most recent to claim the year-end world No. 1 (2003).
He ranked in the top 10 for nine consecutive years between 2002 and 2010 and won five Masters Series in that period. He remains one of the only players in the Grand Slam era to have remained so highly ranked and to have reached more than three grand slam finals and only won one major.
Stephen Curry - NBA
Perhaps one of the most gorgeous and talked-about athletes on this list, Curry is steadily climbing the ranks of all-time great basketball players. Already dubbed the most excellent shooter in NBA history, Curry’s long-range act galvanizes an audience as few others can. With a thin frame and rather average athleticism, he isn't supposed to be this good. Curry already has two MVP trophies and two NBA Titles under his proverbial belt.
Never has the game seen such a lethal perimeter shooter - whether it's spotting up or shooting off the dribble. Curry's uncanny ability to get separation from defenders is awe-inspiring. Though he's still got plenty of time left in his career, Curry's already established himself as the most excellent shooter the game has ever seen.
Alex Rodriguez - MLB
There's no one quite like A-Rod; his numbers are outstanding, and his talent has rarely been matched in the history of the game. Rodriguez finished with a career .295 average while producing 3,115 hits, 2,086 RBI, and 696 home runs.
For a while, he's been more well-known for his relationship with American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez. The two ultimately didn't last and Jen ended up rekindling an old flame and marrying Ben Affleck.
David Beckham - Soccer
A close runner up, David Beckham made his first-team debut at age 17 way back in 1992, beginning his professional club career with Manchester United. Throughout his career, he played for Manchester United, Preston North Madrid, as well as many more.

Tom Brady - NFL
Coming in at number one we have the one and only, Tom Brady. Despite his age, Tom Brady continues to dominate the NFL as its most successful and accomplished quarterback of all time. This six-time Super Bowl champion has won more awards and achieved more accomplishments than the first half of our list combined. Brady is unanimously considered to be the greatest NFL quarterback of all time.
By this point, Brady has made himself synonymous with the sport and is likely the first name any new fan ever hears.
Gareth Bale - Soccer
The Welsh Gareth Bale is known for his speed on the field, astonishing technics, and his sophisticated charm. He began his career as a defender but very fast moved to the forefront of the attack.
He rose to fame wearing the uniform of Tottenham, and he moved to Real Madrid CF, but it was only a matter of time before he returned to his former club, Tottenham. Eventually, he signed up with Los Angeles FC. Without a doubt, he is the hottest Welsh on our list.
Christian Pulisic - Soccer
When you are born to two soccer players, the odds are you will become one yourself too. Both Christian Pulistic's parents were professional players, which explains both his talent and his good looks.

He is better recognized wearing the Liverpudlian red uniform however he has shared his talent with LA Galaxy too. He was a great player with magnetic characteristics and for sure deserved a place on our list.
Michael Owen - Soccer
At the beginning of the millennium, the Liverpudlian Michael Owen showed us what soccer was all about. He played for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle United, and Manchester United and then retired, not before making his fame and fortune.
His magnetic moves on the grass and his modest and humble ways, turn him into one of the most lovable ball kickers the world has known.
Wayne Rooney - Soccer
Up until 2021, he was still running the field with an impressive career behind him as well as a small fortune of $170 million. These days he is a soccer coach for the American D.C. United team. At his peak, Rooney was one of the most successful British players, considered a gorgeous one too.
His face has been all over big brands such as Nike, Coca-Cola, and Nokia who have contributed generously with endorsements to his wealth and fame.
Philipp Lahm - Soccer
Bayern Munich's former defensive midfielder and full-back is one of the best-looking (and richest) retired German soccer players. He is considered one of the greatest fullbacks of his time. He was one of the few players who could play both with his right and left foot.
