Exclusive: Barack Obama Wins FHM's World's Sexiest Woman Poll.

US President Barack Obama has been awarded the 2009 FHM Sexiest Woman In The World Award.

The Magazine said he won it for "his extraordinary grace and beauty that unites peoples".

They highlighted Mr Obama's incredibly soft skin and long legs as reasons for the award.

Mr Obama's spokesman said the president was "humbled" to have been presented with the prize by previous winner Megan Fox, who dropped the heavy prize. "That would have hurt if it had landed on your toe" remarked the President, an observation for which Mr Obama was immediately awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics.

There were a record 205 nominations for this year's prize. Angelina Jolie and Cheryl Cole had been among the favourites before Obama surprised everyone to become only the second African American after Halle Berry and the first male winner ever.

However while Obama's coronation was widely applauded many remain uncomfortable with an African American becoming Sexiest Woman in the World, with former winners Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jennifer Lopez both condemning the decision, ostensibly on the grounds that he is a man.

Michelle Obama has said the award will probably be kept next to the Turner Prize trophy her husband won for the contents of his waste paper bin.
