Ahhhh, athletes! They have beautiful and fit bodies, they play sports for a living and for some reason unbeknownst to us, they are usually pretty cute. From football (that’s soccer for you Americans) to tennis, to swimming, there’s always a reason to watch these men play. If you’re feeling low and need to be cheered up or you just feel like learning a little bit more about these French hotties, read on. You might meet one of these hunky athletes one day, so you have to know a little bit about them before, right? A girl can dream! Here are 15 of the hottest francophone male athletes.
This 6’1” footballer plays for Ligue 1 club Rennes, the Rennes soccer team. He’s an attacking midfielder and is one of the best footballers of his generation and he’s often been compared to Zinedine Zidane. He’s won the Ligue 1 award for Player of the Year and won French Player of the Year. He also plays for France during the international circuit so keep an eye out for him at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia!
Thierry Henry is a retired footballer player. He played for 20 years in France, Italy, Spain, England and in the United States in some of the world’s best teams including Arsenal FC and FC Barcelona. This 6’2” hottie played forward and is Arsenal FC’s all-time record goalscorer. He is now the second assistant manager for Belgium’s national team. Unfortunately, ladies, he is unavailable since he’s been dating Bosnian model Andrea Rajacic since 2008 (and they have a child together).
This tall glass of water (he’s 6’5”!!) is a retired Olympic swimmer. His specialty is the backstroke and he’s won three consecutive world championships for the 50-meter race. Even though he’s never won an Olympic medal (he came fourth in 2012 and 7th in 2016), this attractive Frenchy is still a fan favourite. He is still in the spotlight, appearing in the French version of Dancing With The Stars, Danse avec les stars and now owns a cocktail bar in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood in Paris. Ladies, he’s looking to find love so here’s your chance to dazzle him!
