Name a person from...

I thought it would be a fun game to see which person pops up in my mind first when I think of a certain country. Give it a go yourself but try to avoid tennis and maybe even sports.

France:
Germany:
Spain:
Canada:
Mexico:
Australia:
Rusland:
China:
Japan:
Belgium:

You tell me I'm exceptional and I promise to exploit you.
