Australian spin legend Shane Warne was on Friday given the most insulting award of his life, being termed as the ‘Un-Australian of the year’ by the Zoo Weekly magazine.

Since he started dating British model and actress Liz Hurley, Warne has transformed from the poster boy, from drinking beer and eating burgers to a smooth skinned and slim gentleman.

The new look of a metro-sexual gentleman from a quintessential Australian, has earned the 42-year-old this insult which has embarrassed many of his fellow countrymen.

“Warnie’s woeful makeover had sealed the deal. He’s a bloke who went from eating baked beans to being the same colour as them. He looks like Teri Hatcher’s stunt double. We’re all for punching above your weight, but you’ve got to go in the ring with the same body you had at the weigh-in,” Tim Keen, editor of the Australian lads’ magazine was quoted sa saying by the Daily Mail.

After divorcing wife Simone in 2006, Warne has lost two stone weights and has constantly declined undergoing plastic surgery or getting any cosmetic enhancements done.

“I’m the fittest I have ever been, I’m the happiest I have ever been. I’m healthy, what’s the crime here? I’m not longer the 30-year-old bloke who used to sit in the changing room and have a beer and pies. I’m 42 and maturing now,” Warne said recently.

However, Liz Hurley didn t stepped back from ridiculing Warne, when she mocked him of using female beauty products.

“He has his own set now. He uses the girls’ ones,” Hurley added.
