Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been ranked as the tenth most admired man in the world by Americans polled in a worldwide survey conducted by YouGov.

Netanyahu polled in with 3.7% of responders listing the prime minister either as their "most admired man" or among the people who they "truly admire."

In the US rankings, Netanyahu trailed the Dalai Lama in 9th place, Donald Trump in 8th, Bernie Sanders in 6th, Pope Francis at 2nd and Barack Obama in 1st place. Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres made up the top three among the most popular women.

Despite requiring nominations in at least two countries of the 30 polled, Netanyahu failed to make it onto any other country’s top 20 list of admired men. Other countries surveyed included the UK, Germany, Canada, China and the UAE. Israel was not among those surveyed.

Globally, the most admired woman was found to be Angelina Jolie, followed by the UK’s Queen Elizabeth II, and Hillary Clinton in third. Bill Gates, followed by Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping made up the top three ranked men in the world.
