It is Forbes, who has presented lists at a furious pace lately, which today came to CR7, which is the Portuguese brand.

Ronaldo earned $ 105 million last year, just over SEK 900 million, with salary and advertising revenue before the tax was deducted.

Woods past the milestone as early as 2009

The 35-year-old, who has earned his money for 17 years as a professional, is the third athlete to cross the $ 1 billion milestone. Golfer Tiger Woods did it already in 2009 and boxer Floyd Mayweather 2017.

Popular Ronaldo is followed by at least 427 million people on their social accounts. Only by shoe and clothing giant Nike will get Ronaldo SEK 180 million annually and the money will continue to flow. As the third athlete, after Michael Jordan and LeBron James, he has a lifetime contract with the American company.

Ronaldo's constant rival, Barcelona's Leo Messi, is expected to pass a billion dollars next year.
