Who are the highest-paid athletes in the world?


The highest-paid athletes in the world are primarily professional athletes from the major sports leagues such as the National Basketball Association (NBA), the National Football League (NFL), and Major League Baseball (MLB), as well as soccer players from European leagues. According to Forbes’ 2020 list of the world’s highest-paid athletes, the top five are:

  1. Lionel Messi (soccer)
  2. Cristiano Ronaldo (soccer)
  3. Neymar (soccer)
  4. Canelo Alvarez (boxing)

It’s important to note that the list is subject to change as the earnings of athletes can fluctuate from year to year. Also, the Forbes list is based on data of the previous year, so the current year’s list could be different.
