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.
