Sport is a wonderful thing. It can bring tears, anger, laughter and joy to millions of people all over the world.
A bonus? It's often presented by some of the most beautiful women in the world!
But whose Presenters are the hottest? The UK's or the Rest of The Worlds?
Step up to the plate, work your way through the batting order below and make sure your vote scores in this look at the Hottest Sports Presenters in the World!
Charlotte Jackson - UK
This blonde bombshell started her career in sports broadcasting working on various popular football websites. However, after presenting on the now defunct Setanta Sports she landed on the screens of that goldmine of beautiful female presenters, Sky Sports News, and hasn't looked back since (not even at all the men wolf whistling at her).
If you should ever meet her just remember not to do an Andy Gray and ask her to tuck something into your trousers. It didn't end too well for him and it probably won't for you either.
Millie Clode - UK
Millie is also a presenter on Sky Sports News but possibly her finest moment came when she won The Sun Newspaper's title of 'Sports Babe of the Year' in 2009.
Could there be a more finer accolade? Well yes, as it turns out. She has been known to feature in various Lad's Mags, and triumphantly made the shortlist for FHM's Sexiest Woman of the Year, which as most women know, is the most creative way men decide who is officially 'fit'. Sorry The Sun.
Georgie Thompson - UK
Georgie has been a long time presenter on Sky Sports News and a reason so many male viewers have been tuning in for so many years (other than to, you know, check football scores and stuff).
She famously dated Dec, out of Ant and Dec, the famous comedic presenting duo from UK Television. He must have been having a laugh when he broke up with her, although like many of his jokes, nobody understood the reasoning behind it.
Kirsty Gallagher - UK
Kirsty hails from Scotland and first appeared on the Sky Sports screen in 1998. Since then she has presented and featured on numerous shows both on Sky and on terrestrial TV. In 2011 she made a welcome return to the Sky Sports News desk where she continues to work today.
The daughter of former Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallagher, she not only inherited her love of sport from her father but her ability at it too. She won 'The Games', a reality show based around celebrities competing in various Olympic style events, in 2005. While the show itself was the typical 'car-crash' viewing most audiences have come to expect from Channel 4, Kirsty's performances in the events were a welcome distraction and she even went on to present the show in following series's.
Hayley McQueen - UK
The daughter of ex Manchester United defender Gordon McQueen, Reds fans were more than happy to accept her as one of their own when she began appearing on their screens with presenting duties on the famous clubs in-house Television Channel MUTV.
She thankfully appears on screen a lot more often than her father does these days, currently presenting alongside Charlotte and co on Sky Sports News.
Natalie Sawyer/Matterface - UK
Natalie worked her way up through the ranks at Sky Sports towers, starting as a 'runner', though her first bit of work at the Channel can be traced back to her appearance as a 'Soccerete' on popular footy show 'Soccer AM'. She eventually landed the top job of presenting on Sky Sports News, where she continues to work today.
She married fellow Presenter Sam Matterface in 2011 and shortly after this her new husband let all his Twitter fans know that he fully appreciates just how lucky he is to have been paired with such a woman for the rest of his life when he sent a Tweet (which was only meant for her) to all of his followers instead. I won't repeat what he said, as it was part crude/part crushingly cringeworthy but the keywords in the Tweet for anyone interested were 'boobies', 'gorgeous face' and 'so hot'.
You get the message - just like his 31,000 followers did.
Sara Carbonero - Spain
This Spanish beauty works as a sports journalist as well as a reporter for Telecinco, in her native country.
She is also famously the girlfriend of Real Madrid and Spain shot stopper Iker Casiilas and became a Youtube sensation when he planted a kiss on her during a post game interview she was conducting with him. I'd imagine he has his 'hands full' 'keeping' her all to himself, and regularly has to 'save' her from the advances of other men but this must surely be his best 'catch' yet.
Enough Goalkeeper puns?
Erin Andrews - USA
Erin specalises in broadcasting from the touchline of some of the biggest sports in the world (or at least in America), such as American Football and Baseball. However, don't worry if you don't understand the rules of these games, it won't spoil your enjoyment of watching her work.
She spent 8 years working for Television network giant ESPN, before recently moving over to work for fellow Television Network giant FOX Sports. It's clear why all the biggest sports broadcasters want her services and surely it's only a matter of time before she lands on the greatest TV Channel of them all, and spritual home to beautiful sports presenters everywhere, Sky Sports News?
Ines Sainz - Mexico
Hotter than an enchilada filled with chillis and Hot Sauce this Latin beauty can be seen presenting on Mexican CNN en Espanol, although it's unlikely you'll ever find that channel if your not in Mexico.
However she does follow her national football team to international tournaments (to report, not to stalk) and worked in South Africa during the World Cup in 2010. Just cross your fingers your national team draws the Mexicans in the group stages of the next World Cup in 2014 and you might get to see a lot more of her.
Who would have thought Cricket could be sexy?
Indians are mad for this sport and it's easy to see why when you have someone like Mandira presenting most of the coverage in the country.
Her work is mainly done for the the IPL (Indian Premier League) as well as hosting coverage at International Tournaments.
Surprisingly she was an Actress before getting into presenting. Not as surprisingly she has also worked as a Model.
So there you have it - a collection of the hottest female sports presenters in the world.
Don't forget to vote for your favourite, as well as which team wins (UK or ROW) and feel free to leave a comment if I've missed someone I shouldn't have!

CCahill from England on September 03, 2012:
Dec is crazy! She looks like perfect Girlfriend material, i bet she'd even kick your ass on Fifa and then make you a Sandwich at half time.
Kirsty Gallagher is complete wife material, don't forget Gabby Logan
Aaaah Gordon McQueens daughter! i had no idea that's who she was, explains her Footie interest.
Slightly Jealous of Casillias, least hes got some nice thoughts to think about whilst standing bored on the Goal line for 89 minutes of the match, no points for guessing where his mind is.
