Behind the scenes with HOT 100 winner Simon Dunn

By Will Stroude

Simon Dunn has had a bit of a whirlwind week since he was crowned the hottest man in the world in our annual HOT 100 poll last Monday (July 20), and now the Aussie bobsledder has shared a special behind-the-scenes video of everything he’s been up to – including his sexy new shoot for the new issue of Attitude, which you can get you hands on now!

No sooner had the gay athlete taken the crown in London last week – beating One Direction, Channing Tatum, Tom Daley and a whole host of other hot fellas – he was on a plane to Arizona to get some celebratory tiger tattoos etched on to his manly thighs.

It sure has been a great week for Simon, who’s been inundated with marriage requests from men around the world following his comments about being single and looking for love.

The sexy sports star, who admits he’s “still a little shocked” by the accolade, celebrates his 28th birthday today (July 27), and if those stills of him poolside in Arizona are anything to go by, he’s certainly celebrating it in style…
