Positive views of the UK have risen, making it the second most popular country in the world, after Germany.
The BBC World Service Country Rating Poll asked nearly 29,000 people to rate the global influence of 16 nations. The UK's positive rating rose from 53 per cent in 2010 to 58 per cent this year. It is the first time it has been the runner-up in the poll. Germany was positively rated by 63 per cent.
Of the 27 countries polled, 24 lean positively towards the UK while two, Pakistan and Mexico, are negative. One country, Turkey, is divided.
