The US magazine Forbes has published its yearly list of the top earners in the sports industry in 2020.
The list is based on research done by the magazine’s editors and on estimates, and the ranking is considered reliable. The published income includes prize money, salaries and bonus payments.
In 2020, for a change, it is not a soccer player who leads the list but someone from the world of tennis. With an income of 106,3 million USD, Roger Federer is the number one. Only 6.3 million dollars of his total profit is prize money.
Roger is followed by Cristiano Ronaldo, who has an income of 105 million USD in 2020. Lionel Messi, last year’s number one on the Forbes list, takes in 2020 rank three with a profit of 104 million USD.
