Being a British app, many of the other names on the list are also British nationals.

According to the poll, Anthony Joshua finished second, with Travis Kelce taking third. Lewis Hamilton was voted fourth, ahead of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is known for his incredible physique, but it wasn't enough to win over the female voters.

In sixth place was Erling Haaland, while his Manchester City teammate Jack Grealish finished seventh.
