Virat Kohli: Forbes names India captain highest-paid cricketer

Conor McGregor

Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather has reclaimed first place from Cristiano Ronaldo in Forbes' 2018 list of the world's 100 highest-paid athletes, with Ireland's Conor McGregor in fourth.

It is noted that in the "World's Highest-Paid Athletes 2018" list the 41-year-old Mayweather, with United States dollars 285 million earnings topped. Forbes estimated that in the last 12 months as of June 1, she earned $18 million, which put her below the 100th athlete on the 2018 list ― National Basketball Association player Nicolas Batum, who earned $22.9 million.

The magazine expanded the list in 2010, and since then at least one woman has been included.

Tennis star Serena Williams, who was the only woman featured in last year's list, ranking at No. 51, dropped out of the running in 2017 after taking time off from the sport to have a baby.

Tiger Woods, who has not won a tournament for 5 years and who has barely played over the previous 3 seasons, remains the highest earning golfer with $43.3 million, with $42 million of it coming through endorsements. That sends a particularly disturbing message to female athletes everywhere, suggesting that women are financially punished for going on maternity leave. His estimated earnings, including endorsements, for 2017 were $285 million. There were plenty of players who soared off and took huge leaps in the standings, courtesy of huge new deals they signed in the summer of 2017 - Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, and Blake Griffin are few of the top names to have done so.

LeBron James played in the National Basketball Association finals with a broken hand
On a personal level, I give thanks to him for giving my five-year-old a game-winner for the ages in these playoffs. The Cavaliers' largest lead in Game 4 was one point. "This feels like reality", Kerr said.

According to Forbes website www.forbes.com: "Athletes from 11 different sports made the cut".

The top is dominated by American sportsmen including LeBron James and two National Football League quarterbacks, but there is no room for New England Patriots' hero Tom Brady.

Forbes's sporting rich list is created after calculating an athlete's earnings from prize money, salaries and bonuses in the year to 1 June 2018.

The advertising revenue is not equal to a 20-fold victor of tournaments of the Grand slam Roger Federer - the Swiss has earned $ 65 million, which is nearly seven times more than Mayweather.
