London: Former soccer star David Beckham (in file pic) has been named the world's best underwear model. The 38-year-old, who retired from soccer last year, has been crowned the champion by fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger as he believes the famous star can pull off the seductive look in minimal clothing, reported Daily Mirror online.
"I have seen all kinds of underwear models, but we all wish we looked like David Beckham at the end of the day. He is like the underwear model of the century," Hilfiger said.
The handsome athlete first posed wearing briefs in 2007 when he appeared alongside his fashion designer wife Victoria in the Emporio Armani campaign. In 2012, the former England captain bared his toned physique once again when he launched his own bodywear line for the high-street retailer H&M.
However, Beckham has previously revealed that his sons Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, nine, get embarrassed when they see him posing in his undergarments.
