The Most Handsome Face Of 2021 Has Been Announced

As we enter a new year, it's good to take stock and look back at the last 12 months.

But while many would focus on the wars, the political turmoil and the pandemic, how about we have a look at some of the world's the best looking fellas, eh?

TC Candler has compiled a list of the most handsome men of 2021, pitting the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Chris Hemsworth and Harry Styles against one another to see who is the prettiest of them all.

In the past, winners of the prestigious award have included Jamie Dornan, Michael Fassbender, Michiel Huisman and Jason Momoa.

But this year's hotly-contested prize saw a new face crowned 'the world's most handsome'.

Pipping some of the biggest names in Hollywood to the title was Paing Takhon, a model and actor from Myanmar who has just been sentenced to three years in prison.

He beat Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, who came second, South Korean poster Kim Tae-hyung in third, US star Timothée Chalamet in fourth and South Korean singer Jeon Jung-kook, who rounded off the top five.

Elsewhere in the list, Ronaldo only just made the top 100, coming in at 86, while F1 driver Charles Leclerc was voted in at 99.

Spider-Man star Tom Holland didn't do too badly, reaching 58th place.

However, he didn't do quite as well as Patrick Schwarzenegger - the son of Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger - who came in at 47th spot.

Ex England captain and Manchester United footballer David Beckham also made an appearance, finishing in 39th, while popstar Jason Derulo was one spot behind in 40th.

Last week, winner of the top spot Takhon hit the headlines after he was sentenced to three years in prison for his part in a mass demonstration against the military coup which took place in Myanmar last February.

Discussing the shocking news, Takhon's legal representative Khin Maung Myint told the media that he had been sentenced to hard labour.

In a written statement shared online, he said: "We strongly condemn military coup. We demand immediate release of state counseller [sic] Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint, civilian government ministers and elected members of perliment [sic].

"We demand to respect 2020 election results and form new civillian [sic] government soonest by NLD led perliment [sic]."

According to reports, the actor's Instagram account, which boasted over million followers, was pulled down shortly after his arrest back in April, as well as his Facebook account.

A friend of Takhon's told the BBC that he had been suffering from depression at the time of his arrest and couldn't even 'stand properly'. 

However, he said that the singer was 'not scared at all' of the consequences that faced him for his part in the demonstration.
