Americans scooped 45th position, just five counts off the last nation, while Germans were ranked 44th.

"The United States has a hugely-diverse population, making it hard to pinpoint what an ‘American’ looks like. Some might say Britney Spears, others think of Donald Trump," read part of the report.

Nigerians were ranked 29th, Morocco 35th, Egyptians 37th and Tunisians at 40th position, closing the list of top African countries in the survey.

The team surveyed a sample of 1.5 million audiences who shared their views that transcended into votes.

Respondents were not given specifications of the term ‘sexy’, so interpretation of the word was up to them.

The term 'sexy’, according to Merriam-Webster dictionary, is classified as “generally attractive or interesting”.
