Winston Churchill voted 'greatest British gentleman of 20th century'
London, Dec 9 (ANI): Sir Winston Churchill was voted the greatest British gentleman of the last century in a new poll conducted in England.
The former British Prime Minister, who inspired the nation to stand in defiance of Hitler during World War Two, topped the survey of 4,000 people held by Austin Reed to uncover the greatest gentlemen in modern memory.
"Sir Winston Churchill showed unprecedented courage and strength to lead this country and is a worthy choice as the greatest British gentleman," the Daily Mail quoted a spokesman for Austin Reed as saying.
The runner-up was Britain's best-known natural history filmmaker Sir David Attenborough, who brought the hidden secrets of the world to living rooms across the country with programs like 'Life', 'The Blue Planet' and 'Frozen Planet'.
Bronze went to Stephen Fry, whose intelligent and amusing contributions to our TV screens and Twitter feeds have made him a national treasure.
Prince William took the fourth place; with this year's Royal Wedding coverage bearing testimony of the place the young Prince holds in the British public's hearts.
Rounding off the top five was Colin Firth, who wowed us with his Oscar-winning portrayal of King George VI in 'The King's Speech'. (ANI)
