Researchers took 2,000 men and asked them what they thought their fellow men should know. Ones that peaked our interest were 'knowing that when a woman says she is 'fine', she is actually not fine, what their partner's favourite drink is and 'when a woman says 'do what you want' she means the opposite.

Can your man do everything below?

Can your man do everything below?

We are glad to see that remembering their wedding and anniversary date is top on the list.

A spokesman for bookmakers William Hill said: " The results show the range of skills, facts and ways of thinking that we associate with the modern man.

"It shows a good blend of traditional values long associated with masculinity and the ability to master tasks that perhaps don't come as easily to the modern man as they might to the generation before them.

"Having confidence balanced with an attentive nature and, of course, a bit of sporting knowledge should set men up well when checking themselves against the list."

"Knowing your anniversary date or remembering to polish your shoes might seem like small things but they're obviously important to get right.

"Being handy and good at practical tasks is always going to help a man seem competent but a bit of sporting passion and knowing your stuff when it comes to the weekend's football clearly doesn't go amiss."
