London: Britain's Prince William has been named the world's most influential man, beating US President Barack Obama and late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in a poll.
The 29-year-old Duke of Cambridge also came ahead of David Cameron, who was last in the list, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Daily Express reported on Wednesday.
"This was the year our readers believe Prince William finally came of age, making the Royal Family accessible and cool, in a way that the previous generation failed," Express said quoting Drew Lubega, UK editor of lifestyle site AskMen.com, who commissioned the survey. "He's a hard worker determined to use his global profile for good causes."
French DJ David Guetta came second in the list of Top 49 Most Influential Men. Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was third, journalist Piers Morgan was fourth, and Obama was 10th in a poll of 7,200 men aged 18-40, according to the newspaper.
