A general analytic spherically symmetric solution of the Bogomol’nyi equations is found. It depends on two constants and one arbitrary function on radius and contains the Bogomol’nyi–Prasad–Sommerfield and Singleton solutions as particular cases. Thus all spherically symmetric ’t Hooft–Polyakov monopoles with massless scalar field and minimal energy are derived.
