Soccer superstar David Beckham and screen beauty Jennifer Lopez have been crowned the world's sexiest man and woman, according to a new global poll.

More than 15,000 people voted for the Real Madrid hunk, ahead of actor George Clooney, who finished second, and Ben Affleck in third.

While Lopez topped the sexiest female poll, OSCAR-winning CATHERINE ZETA-JONES came second, with equal third place going to beauties Halle Berry and Britney Spears.

The votes were collected in the online 2003 DUREX GLOBAL SEX SURVEY.
