David Beckham said his sons laughed when they heard he was being named People's Sexiest Man Alive.

The football legend and father-of-four (40) said he was "very pleased" to accept the accolade, chosen by the American magazine's editors and following in the footsteps of George Clooney, Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum.

In a revelation that makes him possibly even hotter, he says: "I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person."

"I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way."

He joked that his wife of 16 years Victoria Beckham (41) would hopefully "feel this way about me all the time", but was quick to congratulate her hunky other half.

The couple have four children Brooklyn (16), Romeo (12), Cruz (10) and Harper (four).

"We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, 'Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?," he told the magazine.

"Brooklyn was the one who was like, 'Are you sure it's not me that's meant to be there today?'"
