Cristiano Ronaldo Tops ‘Forbes’ Highest-Paid Athletes List

Barcelona and Messi may have won La Liga, but Cristiano Ronaldo is now the world’s most-minted athlete, according to Forbes. Ronaldo leapt three spots, overtaking retired boxers Manny Pacquiao and Floyd “Money” Mayweather for the top spot. The three-time Ballon d’Or winner has reportedly earned $88M USD over the past year, thanks to a portfolio that includes his $50 million USD/year contract with Real Madrid and sponsorships from Nike, Tag Heuer, Monster headphones, not to mention his own signature apparel, underwear, footwear and fragrance lines.
