Sylvester Stallone has come up tops in a poll of action heroes.

The Expendables star was voted the greatest action man for his iconic role as maverick Vietnam veteran John Rambo by whatsontv.co.uk readers, defeating Expendables co-stars Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Die Hard actor Bruce came second for his role of New York cop John McClane, while Arnie took third place for portraying killing machine The Terminator.

Proving women can also be screen icons, Linda Hamilton as The Terminator's Sarah Connor was placed fourth, and Sigourney Weaver came in 10th in the list for playing gutsy Ellen Ripley in Aliens.

Other action men who appeared in the poll include Jean-Claude Van Damme in fifth position, followed by Steven Seagal, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren and Kurt Russell.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
