Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been ranked the world's third most popular leader, according to a survey done by Gallup International.

Topping the list of popularity is French President Emmanuel Macron followed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Gallup International in its annual survey — opinion of Global Leaders conducted across 50 nations — rated PM Modi among world's top three leaders.

In each country a representative sample of around 1,000 men and women was interviewed either face-to-face, or via phone, or through online mediums.

The field work was conducted during October-December 2017.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May and  Chinese President Xi Jinping also made it to the top 5 ranks after Modi. At 11th position, Donald Trump ranked just below Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Modi has high favourability ratings in Afghanistan and Bangladesh, according to the survey. 69 percent of participants from Afghanistan and 51 percent from Bangladesh viewed him favourably.
