The striking mohican 'do that David Beckham sported in 2001 has been named the most memorable hairstyle in sporting history.
Becks scored nearly one-third of vote in the Brylcreem poll, which ranked Sir Bobby Charlton's comb-over as runner-up and snooker player Paul Hunter's alice-banded locks at number three.
Other memorable coiffures included in the top ten were tennis ace Andre Agassi's spectacular Eighties-era mullet, Brazilian footballer Ronaldo's lucky "semi-circle and tuft" hairdo and athlete-turned-Calvin Klein model Freddie Ljungberg's shocking pink, spiky hair.
Twenty-eight-year-old David, however, was the undeniable king of the list. He appeared a second time on the roster, at number 12, for the corn-row braids he wore as he met former South African president Nelson Mandela.
