Forbes has published a fresh ranking of the 50 highest paid athletes over the past twelve months. The list includes representatives of football, including American, basketball, boxing, tennis, golf, baseball and motorsport.
Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen were expected to be the highest paid drivers, with earnings of $65 million and $64 million, respectively. Such a “modest” income by the standards of the other participants in the rating did not allow Lewis and Max to even get into the top twenty. The Mercedes driver is in 21st place, the reigning world champion is in 22nd. Other riders did not make it into the Top 50.
At the same time, Max Verstappen was in the top three highest paid athletes under 25 years old, second only to football player Kylian Mbappe ($120 million) and American football player Kyler Murray ($70.5 million).
Cristiano Ronaldo is the world’s highest-paid sportsman for Al-Nasr and the Portuguese national team. Forbes experts estimate his income at $136 million.
