New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has once again proven his global popularity by landing a spot in the top ten ranks of the World’s Most Admired Men list of 2021. The list has been released on the basis of a survey done by data analytics company YouGov.
Modi has secured the 8th spot on the list released by YouGov, surpassing many influential celebrities and political figures. In the World’s Most Admired Men 2021 list, PM Modi has been ranked above notable people such as US President Joe Biden, Pakistan PM Imran Khan, and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Other Indian personalities featured in the top twenty spots of the list are cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli, and Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. Former US President Barack Obama has retained the top spot on the list, with American businessman Bill Gates on the second spot.
The results have been calculated from the combination of responses to two questions – whether a respondent admires the figure at all and then whether they are the figure the respondent admires the most, the analytics company said.
Apart from the list of World’s Most Admired Men 2021, YouGov has also released a list of the world’s most admired women of this year. The top spot on the list has been nabbed by the Former First Lady of the US Michelle Obama.
