Federer is the highest paid athlete, takes over Ronaldo

May 30, 2020 11:53 IST

On Friday, the 20-time Grand Slam Champion Roger Federer replaced Juventus' star Cristiano Ronaldo and became the highest-paid athlete according to the Forbes' list. While the 38-year-old Swiss Maestro became the first from his sports to top the list, he has earned an estimated $106.3 million in the past 12 months. The Portuguese footballer had to take a major pay cut as a result of the economic crisis due to the pandemic. As the 35-year-old stands on the second position, his pay cut has turned out to be a major reason for his fall out from being the number 1. Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli is the only cricketer on the list and features on the 66th spot
