Model crowned most handsome face of 2021 after getting 3-year prison sentence

Model and actor Paing Takhon has been crowned as having the 'most handsome face of 2021'.

However, we're not sure that he'll be celebrating too much, as the star from Myanmar has just received a three-year prison sentence.

Takhon, 25, hit the headlines last week after he was sentenced to three years in prison for his part in a mass demonstration against the military coup which took place in Myanmar last February.

His legal representative Khin Maung Myint told the media that he had been sentenced to hard labour.

In a written statement that was shared online, he said: "We strongly condemn military coup. We demand immediate release of state counseller [sic] Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint, civilian government ministers and elected members of perliment [sic].

"We demand to respect 2020 election results and form new civillian [sic] government soonest by NLD led perliment [sic]."

The star beat Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, who came second place in the contest, which was compiled by TC Candler.

Meanwhile South Korean signer-songwriter Kim Tae-hyung came in third.

US actor Timothée Chalamet was in fourth place, while South Korean singer and BTS star Jeon Jung-kook finished up the top five.

Other names to feature in TC Candler's list included David Beckham in 39th place, Spider-Man star Tom Holland at 58, and footballer Ronaldo, who came in 86th place,

According to reports, Takhon's Instagram account, which boasted over million followers, was removed after his arrest back in April, as well as his Facebook account.

A friend of Takhon's told the BBC that he had been suffering from depression at the time of his arrest and couldn't even 'stand properly'.

But they said that the singer was 'not scared at all' of the consequences that faced him for his part in the demonstration.
