They're outstanding, lauded sportsmen who can turn anything they appear on into 'sold'. It's no wonder so many big fashion houses choose these hotties to represent their brand.

We're talking about sportsmen who impress on the field and in front of the camera. It's a given that they'd be in good shape - considering their line of work - but we applaud them nonetheless for their modelling chops.

Uber-Olympian Michael Phelps' recent turn as a model for Louis Vuitton inspired us to remember other great sportsmen who are also very easy on the eye.

Armani is first out of the gate when it comes to snagging these hot properties for their campaigns. Rafael Nadal, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham have all modelled the brand's jeans and underwear.

SA's Oscar Pistorius is the face of Thierry Mugler's A*Men fragrance and he looks like a futuristic god in this gorgeous advert.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the many other talents of these gifted sportsmen in these video advertisements. 

Rafael Nadal for Armani Jeans
The sexy tennis champ strips down and writhes around in water in this 51-second black-and-white commercial.

David Beckham in David Beckham Bodywear for H&M
Also in black and white, David Beckham wears nothing but a tighty-whitey from his new underwear line in this indulgent ad which sees him showing off his tattoos. This was his first campaign for the brand, and he's just completed shooting a second set of ads.

Oscar Pistorius for Thierry Mugler
The Blade Runner is postively other-worldly in this luxurious, ethereal video for Thierry Mugler's A*Men fragrance.

Cristiano Ronaldo for Armani Jeans
Six packs probably look better in black and white... In this cute 90-second video Cristiano Ronaldo's housekeeper tries her best to keep him shirtless.

Usain Bolt for PUMA's Animagical
The fastest man on earth busts a move or two in this fragrance commercial.

Jenson Button for BOSS Bottled Sport
The British Formula 1 driver has perfected the brooding stare in this ad.
