Virat Kohli only Indian in Forbes’ 100 highest-paid athletes list

Lionel Messi

The rankings is based on overall earnings which includes salaries, winnings from respective sports and endorsement deals all amassed over the period between June 2018 to June 2019.

Ranked 83rd on last year's list, Kohli has climbed down to the 100th spot despite an increase of United States dollars 1m in endorsements.

Messi made $127 million a year ago, followed by Ronaldo's $109 million and Neymar cashing in with $105 million.

Last year's highest earner, boxer Floyd Mayweather, dropped off the list completely.

However, McGregor not only kept his status as the highest earner from the sport of mixed martial arts, he was also the only MMA fighter to make it into the Top 100.

Messi is one of 38 non-American athletes on the list, with 62 U.S. stars in the top 100.

In it, Square Enix also revealed their earnings forecast for the current fiscal year running from April 1 through March 31, 2020. The video, which was posted in YouTube , has been viewed more than 2.1 million times as of writing time.

Messi is only the second footballer to top the rankings after Ronaldo, and only the eighth different athlete to take the number one spot since the rankings began in 1990.

Thirty-five of their players featured (down from 40 last year), headed by LeBron James at $US89 million.

Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez is the highest paid non-footballer on the list with earnings of $94 million, in large thanks to his five-year, 11-fight deal worth at least $365 million, while tennis great Roger Federer comes in just behind him with earnings of $93.4 million.

"But basketball players continue to dominate the top 100 overall, with 35 athletes on the list earning a total of $US1.29 billion, with 72 per cent of that income coming from salaries rather than endorsement deals".

For the second successive year, Lionel Messi sits above arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo in Forbes' latest rich list, ranking as the best-earning footballer across the globe.
