Cristiano Ronaldo Leads Forbes Richest Sportmen List

Top business magazine, Forbes has released the top 20 richest sportsmen in the world for 2017 with Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo leading the chart.

Ronaldo earned £70m in the last year, making him the highest paid European sports personality.

The 32-year-old missed out on the number one spot in celebrity rating by just £1m, being beaten into second place by Harry Potter author, JK Rowling in the top spot.

The figures, an estimate by Forbes, are calculated before taxes and management fees are taken into account.

Ronaldo’s earnings are largely made up of his Real Madrid contract and endorsement deals.
