Beckham tops Britain’s Most Powerful 40 or under Man poll

November 14th, 2007 - 3:03 am ICT by admin  
The Power List, compiled by Arena magazine, was based on people living in Britain or abroad.

The people polled included political journalists, politicians, film studio owners, music producers, musicians, trend consultants and financial experts.

Beckham said that he was really amazed after he came to know that he had topped the list of young Brit men.

“I am really honoured. To get that title for just being a footballer is quite amazing,” the Daily Snack quoted him, as saying.

Arena editor Giles Hattersley said that the reason why the footballer topped the list was that he is the most recognisable Brit on the planet.

“Beckham has topped this year’s Arena Power List because he is arguably the most recognisable Brit on the planet,” he said.

“David is our biggest sporting export and has inspired boys of all ages to become passionate about football - and fashion. He boasts a formidable CV - on and off the pitch - and at 32, has already lived the lives of ten men,” he added.

The top ten includes Shadow Chancellor George Osborne (4th position) Prince Harry (5th position), Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich (6th position) and Bond star Daniel Craig (10th position).
