UK gay glossy Attitude has revealed its HOT 100 winner: Australian bobsledder Simon Dunn.

Dunn knocked two-time winner Tom Daley from the top spot. Daley fell to fourth place in this year's survey.

When he joined the Australian bobsleigh team last year, Dunn became the sport's first openly gay athlete.

“It's flattering enough to have been voted on to the HOT 100 at all but to think I have been voted number one and beat guys like Tom Daley and Liam Payne is beyond me!” Dunn said. “I'm absolutely convinced my mother had all her friends vote for me – thanks mum!”

“I just want to say thanks to everyone who voted for me for their ongoing support and I hope that my win can help spread the word about equality in sport. If I can make one young gay teen see that sexuality shouldn't be a factor in sport then that's a win in itself,” he added.

Coming in at second place was Channing Tatum. Also in the top five were Liam Payne (3), Tom Daley (4) and Chris Evans (5).
