Bare-faced cheeks for Tsonga
08:59 CEST+02:00

French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has appeared naked in this month's Cosmopolitan.

The 26-year old appeared in the magazine as part of a campaign about prostate cancer.

Pictured standing on rocks in Monaco, the finalist in last week's Queen's tennis tournament reveals that his bottom is the favourite part of his body.


"My ass is my best part but I don't like my feet" he says. When it comes to women, "I like beautiful eyes."


When asked if he withholds from sex before a big match, the player ranked 19th in the world says "that depends who is in my bed. I could never choose between sex and tennis. I think it's better to keep both for as long as you enjoy them."


Tsonga will be back in action in more traditional attire at Wimbledon this week. He faces Japanese player Go Soeda in the first round, ranked 131 in the world.
