Tom Daley Is 'Attitude's Sexiest Man in the World

By: Ross von Metzke

Zac Efron and David Beckham are sexy, but according to Attitude magazine, not as sexy as Olympic diver Tom Daley.

Daley, who made headlines last year when he came out of the closet in a YouTube video, was named the Sexiest Man in the World by the UK publication for the second year running.

"It's been a big year for Tom Daley,” Attitude’s Deputy Editor Andrew Fraser said in a statement. “When he made his very moving and personal video last year, where he revealed his relationship with Dustin Lance Black – he not only changed his own life, but will have helped change the lives of countless other young gay people who are starved of role models in the world of film, TV and sport. Attitude is proud that our readers, in their infinite wisdom, voted Tom as their number one sexiest man for the second year running – and we are celebrating with Tom as our cover star, in his brilliant and revealing first ever gay magazine interview."

Daley appears on the cover of the magazine shirtless and in a low rise pair of jeans. The issue of Attitude with Daley on the cover hits newsstands next week.
