Cristiano’s latest huge milestone to top the list comes after he was named the world’s highest-paid athlete by Forbes earlier in May, with his annual earnings topping £109million this year.
Cristiano made a £175million move to the Saudi Pro League in January this year and the lucrative switch has taken him to the top of the Forbes Sports Rich List for the first time since 2017.
He topped the list for the third time overall, with his total earnings of £109 million, the highest figure from a footballer in history.
An estimated £37 million of that income came on the field – which Forbes says ‘combined his two contracts for this season and accounted for his brief unemployment’ – although nearly double that amount came from off-field endorsements.
Only three athletes in Forbes history have beaten his off-field total of £72 million in a year: Roger Federer, Tiger Woods and Conor McGregor.
According to reports in Spain, Cristiano is believed to have an iron-clad ‘pre-nuptial-style’ agreement with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, should the pair split.
