To honour the naming of Real Madrid football star Cristiano Ronaldo as Spain's sexiest sports star, The Local has put together a delicious gallery of the country's top ten hottest male athletes.

Cristiano Ronaldo was recently crowned Spain's sexiest sports star, taking the title by winning 34 percent of the vote in a poll run by Spanish dating agency Romance Secreto.

It caps what has been a great year for the Portuguese player both on and off the pitch.

He scored 53 goals in all competitions and kept up his high-profile relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk.

Check out The Local's List of Spain's top ten hottest male sports stars in all their sweaty glory.

Taking second place in the poll was Toledo tennis player Feliciano López, who nabbed 27 percent of the vote. 

The player, now ranked 31 in the world, probably receives more accolades for his biceps than this powerful serve these days.

Hot on the heels of López was Spanish goalkeepers Iker Casillas.

One in four women polled by Romance Secreto named the boy-next-door heartthrob as Spain's sexiest sport star.

Casillas, rarely out of the newspapers, is one half of what must be one of Spain's most glamorous couples.

His long-term girlfriend is the reporter Sara Carbonero. No stranger to stares herself, Carbonero was named the World's Sexiest Reporter by FHM magazine in 2009.
