Idris Elba named 'Sexiest Man Alive' and Twitter couldn't be happier

People Unites The Nation By Naming Idris Elba 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive

While announcing the news, Elba encouraged Americans to go and vote on Tuesday. Or at the very least, can we get Idris Elba as James Bond? Now, he's finally got the recognition he deserves.

People magazine has revealed its annual pick for Sexiest Man Alive, and the chiselled face of this year's choice is familiar to viewers of film and TV: Idris Elba.

His early days were far from sexy, Elba said, growing up "tall and skinny" at an all-boys school in London, where he played football, basketball, cricket, hockey and rugby. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay?"

Last year's honoree was singer Blake Shelton.

Others who have taken on the coveted title - which includes an appearance on the cover of People - include Johnny Depp in both 2003 and 2009, George Clooney in 1997 and 2006, Brad Pitt in 1995 and 2000, and David Beckham in 2015.

Autopsy finds rapper Mac Miller died from drugs and alcohol
His friends paid tribute to him during the " Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life" tribute concert in Los Angeles last week. Miller's death came just months after he split from Ariana Grande and weeks after he was charged with a DUI.

He said: "Who'd have thought it!"

"Thank you [People] and all the fans for naming me [Sexiest Man Alive]..." But again, as soon as I could grow a moustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. What's even more important is your vote in the midterm elections.

According to People magazine, the 46-year-old actor was dumbfounded after discovering the crown of the "Sexiest Man Alive" upon his head. In the cover blurb, Elba is described as a "sweet, smoldering superstar", so Fallon had him show us a little of each. "Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers".

He has two children, and proposed to his model fiancee Sabrina Dhowre, 29, in February.
