We disagree! The Olympic medallist is up for grabs

Ever since Rupert Grint caught our eye in the Harry Potter films, there’s been a redhead revolution.

Homeland’s Damien Lewis, Lego-loving Ed Sheeran and king of the recessive hair gene Prince Harry!

But there’s only one ginger for us. Hello, Greg Rutherford.

As he strips off for our shoot, Olympic gold medal-winning long jumper Greg, 26, admits he feels out of shape following a double hernia and foot surgery. But check out those abs.

Greg‘s our sexy ginger 2012!

‘[Laughs] I don’t know about being sexy! I’m happily ginger. I was teased at school, obviously.’ Greg tells us.

Ginger hair is taboo no matter what age you are.

‘People say I’m bringing ginger back but it’s never been cool, so I don’t know where I’ve brought it back from!’

Greg is single again after splitting with ex Liz Rose after 8 years. So what does he look for in a woman?

‘Someone who makes me laugh. And I’m a bit of a geek at heart,’ he insists.

‘I love history and I watch Time Team. I wanted to be an archaeologist for a while. Harrison Ford made it cool as Indiana Jones.’
