KINGSTON, Jamaica, Friday October 19, 2012 — Sprint icon and philanthropist Usain Bolt has had to settle for a rare second place, and not at the hands of his heir-apparent Yohan Blake. This time he finished behind an Englishman.

So just who is the upstart Brit who dared to outstrip the world’s fastest man?

His name is Bond – James Bond.

The fictional 007 hero edged-out Bolt for top spot in a poll for the Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2012 conducted by lifestyle website AskMen.Com, which received more than half a million votes to select the list’s entrants this year.

The online magazine asked its readers, about 17 million each month, to select male figures who made the greatest impact and helped to shape what it means to be a man in 2012.

And Bond gave Bolt the boot.

Not that we imagine Bolt would mind, especially given the great love for Jamaica held by Bond’s creator, British author Ian Fleming.

Meanwhile, former US president, Bill Clinton; creator of the popular Family Guy animated series, Seth MacFarlane; and actor/director, Joseph Gordon-Levitt round out the top five.

Jamaica’s “lightning” Bolt also streaked ahead of US President Barack Obama (#11) and recording mogul Jay-Z (#22), while rapper Kanye West, ranked 31st, is the only man to have made all seven editions of the poll.

Here is a list of the top 13:

1.     James Bond
2.     Usain Bolt
3.     Bill Clinton
4.     Seth MacFarlane
5.     Joseph Gordon-Levitt
6.     Jimmy Kimmel
7.     Elon Musk
8.     Frank Ocean
9.     Kevin Systrom & Mike Krieger
10.    Ryan Gosling
11.    Barack Obama
12.    Michael Phelps
13.    Christian Grey
