The 2010 World Cup is just more than a month away, and Vanity Fair is getting in the soccer spirit by showcasing the bodies of some of the sport's biggest stars. The Ivory Coast's Didier Drogba and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo strip down on the magazine's cover, and more prominent players show their skin inside the issue.
It is not the first time that Ronaldo -- who has reportedly expressed interest in a topless model -- has been photographed while barely clothed.
In addition to Drogba and Ronaldo, Annie Leibovitz photographed players including Brazil's Kaka and Landon Donovan of the U.S.
