Magnus Carlsen among “The sexiest men of 2013”

The famous women’s magazine Cosmopolitan composed a list of “The sexiest men of 2013” for its UK edition. The fifth name among the 23 is Magnus Carlsen.

Cosmopolitan says: “Chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen might just have converted us to the board game. The 22-year-old Norwegian will be competing in the game’s world championships in London and we’ll definitely be getting our geek on and tuning in.”
