Soccer star David Beckham has been chosen as People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2015 in an announcement made on Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," Beckham modestly told People. "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."

Previous recipients of the highly-coveted title include last year's winner Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Channing Tatum.
