ESPN The Magazine puts naked athletes back on the newsstand
The annual Body Issue is back, and so are the naked athletes
ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue is back, and with it the traditional showcase of naked athletes. The images – which are absolutely beautiful – display some of the breadth and diversity in athletic male and female body shapes. (And none of them with a thigh gap.) Athletes including Venus Williams, Tomas Berdych and Michael Phelps got naked for the shoot (though not together). We can already hear the clamour of #strongisthenewsexy and #fitspiration. See our favourites from the images here, and the full collection of photos here.
