Ginger God

British Olympic Champion Greg Rutherford Strips For Cosmo UK

Screen shot 2014-04-03 at 12.52.00The gorgeous ginger god that is Greg Rutherford has posed naked for Cosmopolitan UK.

The British Olympic champion won gold at the Olympic Games in London 2012, and now, he’s taking part in the May edition of the magazine to raise awareness for Cancer Research UK.

In his interview with Comso, Rutherford says:

Being told I’m sexy is something I find funny – as a ginger guy, you get a fair bit of stick growing up. It’s flattering, though. I’m in a lucky position where I get to train every day for a living – but I still have my body hang-ups. I didn’t take my top off for years in training because I thought other athletes were in better shape.

Doing this shoot for Cancer Research UK was important to me: a friend got testicular cancer and had chemo. He’s recovered now. Checking yourself can be the difference between life and death.

Here’s the picture of Greg as featured in Cosmopolitan.


Here are some other lovely pictures of Greg to get you through the day!
