Mr Miliband and Hillary Clinton have met several times this year
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has lavished praise on her UK counterpart David Miliband in an interview with Vogue magazine.
Mrs Clinton described the 44-year-old foreign secretary as "vibrant, vital, attractive, smart".
The two politicians have met several times since Mrs Clinton took up her role January.
The article also quotes Mr Miliband as returning the compliment, saying Mrs Clinton was "delightful to deal with".
In a lengthy piece in Vogue the interviewer jokes at one stage about having a crush on Mr Miliband after talking to him on the phone because of his British accent.
"Well, if you saw him it would be a big crush. I mean, he is so vibrant, vital, attractive, smart. He's really a good guy. And he's so young," Mrs Clinton replied.
Mrs Clinton's first visit to the UK in her new role, in February, saw much being made in the British press of the fact she has referred to the "special relationship" between Britain and the US.
Speaking to Sky News at the time Mr Miliband said she "couldn't have been warmer" and praised Mrs Clinton's "remarkable record".
