Brunei's 'hothlete' Prince Abdul Mateen

As the country hosts the 30th Southeast Asian Games this year, a lot of people are on the look out for sports hotties.

Enter Brunei's Prince Abdul Mateen Bolkiah, son of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. Prince Mateen happens to be a member of the Sultanate's polo team.

After Brunei grabbed its first win against the Philippines in the SEA Games polo event last November 24, the 28-year-old prince also won the hearts of many Filipino fans.

According to Mav Gonzales' report on 24 Oras Monday, Prince Mateen admitted he was flattered that some Filipinos apparently traveled all the way to Calatagan, Batangas to watch them play.

"They just wanted some pictures and I'm flattered," he said.

Prince Mateen has about 1.2 million followers on Instagram and has a ton of fan pages all over the Internet. GQ even named him as "one of Asia's most eligible blue-blooded bachelors." 

Here are some of his photos that makes him a true-to-life prince charming:

Prince Mateen is sixth in line to the oil-rich sultanate's throne. He graduated from the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies in 2016.

Before playing polo, he was an officer at the Royal Brunei Air Force. — Ma. Angelica Garcia/LA, GMA News
