Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk top the poll on the hottest couple in football, the Mirror reported. The Portuguese footballer and the Sports Illustrated model received 18 per cent of the total votes conducted by FreeBetNegotiator.com. David and Victoria Beckham are in the second place with 14 per cent votes while Ronaldo's rival Lionel Messi and wife Antonella Rocuzzo are in the third spot.

Spanish fashion label Desigual is accelerating its expansion in Europe and emerging markets, seeking to ride predictions of fast growth in women's apparel while also taking the colourful brand into new areas like perfume and shoes. The Barcelona-based company is targeting sales of 1 billion euros ($1.4 billion) this year, up from about 820 million in 2013 and 440 million four years ago. It is all part of managing director Manel Jadraque's masterplan to build a powerhouse brand to rival those produced by the likes of French luxury group LVMH, where he worked for a decade before joining Desigual as director of operations in 2004.

It is just normal for superstar male athletes to snag some of the most beautiful women in the world. As much as it is interesting to see footballers play on the field, it is as equally interesting to find out the women on the stands who cheer on their men.
For the longest time, David and Victoria Beckham have been regarded as the most beautiful couple in football. It looks it may be time to pass on the torch to Ronaldo and Shayk.
The duo have been dating since May 2010. Even though their respective professions make it hard for them to always be together, they always find time to spend some quality time with each other whenever they can. Ronaldo's football career is keeping him busy. As for Shayk, she mostly stays in New York, but her modeling career demands her to travel to different parts of the globe.

Ronaldo and Shayk are not only a hot couple, but they also makes a perfect couple who always seem to hog the limelight whenever they go out.
Recently, the rumour that Ronaldo has secretly wed Shayk started circulating in many news Web sites after the 29-year-old Ballon d'Or winner regarded Shayk as his wife during his speech when he accepted the Ballon d'Or trophy. Neither Ronaldo nor Shayk commented on the rumour.
Ronaldo just celebrated his 29th birthday on Feb 5. He has reportedly celebrated with his family, son, and some of his close friends.
"It was fabulous to celebrate my birthday yesterday with my friends and family, I had a great time, thank you all," Ronaldo tweeted.
Shayk, on the other hand, was busy rooting for her country Russia in the 2014 Winter Olympics. She led the Russian Olympic team during the opening ceremony on Feb. 7.
