You know what’s exciting about watching international sporting events? The international sports reporting babes! We’ve got plenty of appreciation for American lady sportscasters, but there’s something even more amazing about hot babes covering sports in sexy foreign accents. Not that we can think of many unsexy accents. You don’t need to hear their voices, anyway. Just check out these amazing galleries, as we present a wide range of incredible international beauties covering the wide world of sports. It’s the thrill of vixens and the agony of knowing they’re somewhere over an ocean!

Charlotte Jackson

Sky Sports News, United Kingdom

Nobody can say that Charlotte Jackson made it on just her looks–although she’s sure a favorite with United Kingdom sports fans. This British babe grew up playing lacrosse, and worked her way from humble sports websites to a regular role on Setanta Sports News. Then she survived that station’s demise to move on to the Sky network–where Charlotte’s hot looks and passion for sports has made her a dream date as “All Action” Jackson!  [ON TWITTER]

Andrea Kaiser

Sports Channel DSF, Germany

Hot blonde sportscaster Andrea Kaiser doesn’t mind mixing business with pleasure. She’s been dating legendary soccer midfielder Lars Ricken for a while. There’s no conflict of interest, though. Ricken’s retired, and Kaiser was watching him play on the field back when she was a teen. Now she’s the favorite fantasy of footballers all across Europe–and we’d love to see more of her in America!

Georgie Thompson

Sky Sports F1, United Kingdom

Georgie Thompson is one of the UK’s favorite faces of sports, and the petite gal became a proper celebrity during her long romance with popular (and short) comic Declan Donnelly. Now she’s currently concentrating on Formula One sports for the Sky empire. Georgie’s not a fan of Facebook, but she loves Twitter so much that she’s co-written a novel about Twittering gal pals called  The Twitter Diaries–and here she is on it… [ON TWITTER]

Diana Dougherty

Sky Sports News, United Kingdom

She grew up playing golf, so Diana Dougherty was a real find as both a babe and a sports fan when she signed on for the first Sky Sports program dedicated to the game. That was back when she was Di Stewart–and, sadly, she changed her name after marrying pro golfer Nick Dougherty in 2010. Now she’s on track to become a magnificent MILF by the end of this summer.

Laura Esposto

Milan Channel, Italy

How sexy is Laura Esposto? She spent a few years modeling in Los Angeles, and was hot enough to make a Carl’s Jr. commercial–which makes her a burger beauty alongside Kate Upton. Sadly, we lost Laura to her homeland back in 2005, when she began to cover soccer for both Sky Italia and the dedicated channel of the A.C. Milan team. She’s continued to do that double duty over the years, giving lucky Italian fans a regular double-dose of Laura. [ON TWITTER]

Kate Abdo

Sky Deutschland, Germany

Sports fans first loved her as Kate Giles on CNN International, but that was before Kate took a married name and moved on to cover all kinds of sports at Sky Deutschland. Brits didn’t really lose Kate, though, and lots of Londoners are thrilled that she’s still anchoring the World Sport program out of their city twice a day.

Jessica Kastrop

Sky Deutschland, Germany

She became a Youtube sensation after getting beaned by a soccer ball, but Jessica Kastrop has always been a real knockout herself.

She still loves soccer, but other men follow Jessica as a real guy’s guy when it comes to covering poker.
