The nights might be drawing in, but there’s a silver lining to all the doom and gloom: naked calendar season is officially upon us!

Yep, as the end of the year draws nearer, we’re already getting a taste of what’ll be hanging on the Attitude office noticeboard come January, and  you’ll be pleased to know that the Dieux du Stade is back for another year – and looking hotter than ever.

Now in its ninth year, the stunning series, which translates to ‘Gods of the Stadium’ in English, sees some France’s biggest sporting heroes strip off for an eye-opening look at the body of  world-class athlete – and this year, we gotta say, the theme seems to have gone rather, well, gay.

Shot by Greek photographer Errikos Andreou, the 2018 shoot features plenty of neon lighting, smoke machines, and glitter balls covering all the right places.

Basically, it looks like Saturday night at your local LGBT discotheque of choice.

Check out some of the highlights below, and be sure to pick up your copy of the calendar here.
