    Athletes are overpaid. They are not worth they money they are receiving.

    @Wizard Brown, why not

    @Larry Fish, well said

    Because there are many footballers of the same standard who have been playing for much longer than Ronaldo. However, I guess he probably gets a lot of the larger advertising and marketing contracts as he is younger? Interesting :)

    Wow! These people are earning so much money that many people could not probably earn in their lifetime.

    Before reading this article, I have no ideas on how much famous athletes can earn. Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting, I’m not surprised there are some footballers in there – our Premier League footballers are all paid far too much.

    I once trained for the Olympics marathon but failed to make the cut, perhaps I would be on this list at number ten.
