Coming in second is US President Barak Obama, followed by Chinese President Xi Jinping. The martial arts legend Jackie Chan is in fourth place on the list.
People from over 30 countries worldwide participated in the selection of the titleholders. They were required to respond to two queries in full: “Who do you find admirable?” – with a vast variety of options, and “Who do you admire the most?” – with only one choice. Based on their answers, YouGov calculated the ultimate outcomes for the two most admired male and female figures in each year.
