An Italian maths teacher at University College London has just become a model for Armani after his students made him famous.

Pietro Boselli became so popular amongst his university students for his looks that they were uploading photos of him on social media, helping him grow a big global following (he now has almost 850,000 Instagram followers). He then entered the sexiest teacher in the world competition (yes, there is one) and won.

The 28-year-old from Negrar, a town near Verona, has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from UCL and has secretly posed for Abercrombie and Fitch and other smaller brands in the past. In fact, his career started quite early when he fronted the Armani Junior campaign at the age of seven. “It was the first entry of my CV I think,” he told Ruptly. He then walked the catwalk for Emporio Armani in 2008 and is now the face of Giorgia Armani’s EA7 Fitness line.

Calling himself a “nerd” he says he turned down many lucrative jobs that would take him away from his books, but is now taking modelling seriously and giving his academic path a break -  he's signed a contract with top agency Models 1 and has landed a job at the Italian luxury label.

Boselli has admitted he always dreamed of modelling.

His super-toned muscles are undeniable, suggesting he works hard for them. So, he also shares his fitness regime on his Instagram account, revealing he trains twice a day and follows a “strict diet” to keep that body shape.

In his YouTube channel he posted a video of his last day pf PhD work where he says “after this I’ll be travelling a lot… exciting times ahead.”
