British actor Idris Elba has caused waves online after he was named People's sexiest man of 2018.

Elba is the 33rd celebrity selected for People's annual Sexiest Man Alive designation.

The actor took to Twitter to thank People magazine for naming him the sexiest man of 2018, while at the same time urging people to buy the magazine and to vote in the United States midterm elections. The Thor star told People he was surprised when he received the news, but said the honour has given him a boost of self-confidence.

"I'm really, really happy with that, man", said Elba as he looked at himself on the cover of People for the first time. "I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today, '" he joked.

There's a clear chance Samsung could also tease its foldable phone at the event to gauge the interest of the developer community. So, we are not sure if it'll be available globally or will be introduced in select markets only, if it ever gets announced.

Elba's selection was revealed on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", with the actor appearing via satellite from London.

"I was very tall and skinny", said Elba, who is 6'3". And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, OK? "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers", he added. And while Elba knew he was the guy, he hadn't seen the magazine cover yet, so Fallon had something new to share with him, too. The actor took to Twitter to say, "Who'd have thought it!" Or at the very least, can we get Idris Elba as James Bond?

Other actors and singers who have been given the title by the magazine's editors in recent years include Blake Shelton, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, George Clooney and Channing Tatum.

People, a weekly magazine in the United States, unveiled Elba in their cover this week. There's more of that really complex character that I love to play'.
