Icelanders seem to be having mixed feelings about Independence Party leader Bjarni Benediktsson becoming their new Prime Minister. Now for a fun fact, since becoming PM he jumped straight to the eighth place on an international list of the Hottest Head of State.

The website ranks Canadian PM Justin Trudeau as the world's hottest head of state and King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuc in second place.  Barack Obama is in fourth place after Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. 

Here are some photographs of Benediktsson to see if you agree.
