First there was David Beckham, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo. But now there's a new underwear model in town, in the form of tennis ace Rafael Nadal. The 24-year-old sportsman, who is currently the number one tennis player in the world, stripped off for the latest campaign for Emporio Armani underwear. In the black and white pictures, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, Nadal is seen looking broodily into the camera while showing off his muscular physique in a tiny pair of Armani pants.

Talking about appointing Nadal as the new face and body of Emporio Armani underwear, Roberta Armani said recently: 'He always chose interesting clothes for tennis, like long trousers or long sleeves on court – he wears a lot of colour. 'He is not just an amazing sportsman but also an artist. I'm so proud he is joining the family.'Nadal's decision to accept the campaign came as something of a surprise to his millions of fans as the Spanish player has always been known for his shy and reserved attitude.
