The former footballer was given the title in the magazine’s latest issue, taking over from last year’s winner, ‘Thor’ actor Chris Hemsworth.
In the accompanying interview, Becks admitted he was surprised to be given the title, claiming: “I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person.
He also wrote about being given the title on his Facebook page, in a sweet message where he joked: “I thought I was past my sell by date but thanks to People for the accolade and the compliment!
“I always feel a little shy when receiving these awards, though it will make my mum happy. This [is] one the kids will laugh at, as they see what Daddy looks like in the morning!”
David is the 30th in a long list of men to have been given the title of Sexiest Man Alive, following in the footsteps of previous honourees like Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise and Bradley Cooper.
