A Greek model has come second in the Mister Universal Ambassador competition for 2019.

Andreas Botaitis represented Greece at the international competition held in Tokyo, Japan on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old had won first place earlier this year in Greece’s national Mister GS Hellas 2019 competition, securing him a place in Tokyo.

Hailing from Katerini, Botaitis has relocated to Athens where he works as a nutritionist and model.

Fourteen models in total took part in the competition, with Josue Rodriguez from the Dominican Republic taking out the top spot.
