Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo earns more than any other sportsperson, Forbes' annual list of the world's wealthiest athletes shows.
 
The influential business magazine's list has been led by either boxer Floyd Mayweather or golfer Tiger Woods for the past decade-and-a-half.
 
But with Mayweather retiring and Woods not playing because of injury, the Portugal captain has risen to the top.
 
He earned $88m (£60.6m) from salary, bonuses and endorsements last year.
 
In full, the top 5 list is as follows:
 
Cristiano Ronaldo - football ($88m/£60.6m)
Lionel Messi - football ($81.4m/£56.1m)
LeBron James - basketball ($77.2m/£53.2m)
Roger Federer - tennis ($67.8m/£46.7m)
Kevin Durant - basketball (£56.2m/£38.7m)
