The last two making the list is surprising but when you throw in the pope, there’s a little bit of surprise.

Pope Benedict was recently named as the best dressed man for 2013 by Time magazine and now this.

The world’s richest man and Microsoft chairman Bill Gates is the most admired person in the world, followed by US President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis and Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar, the London Times reports, citing a poll.

Gates scored highly in each of the 12 countries where YouGov conducted polling and was the most popular in China. Putin’s popularity among Russians helped him secure third place on the list, the newspaper reported.
