Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes First Billionaire Footballer

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has emerged as the first soccer billionaire, according to Forbes.

The 35-year-old Portuguese star is the third athlete after Tiger Woods and Floyd Mayweather to hit the $1 billion earnings mark while still actively competing.

Forbes via its  Twitter handle said Ronaldo earned $105 million in the past year (2019), making him number 4 on the 2020 Forbes list.

Further, Ronaldo raked in £85million last year from his wages and endorsement deals, pushing him into becoming a billionaire.

His capital for the past year was second only to tennis superstar, Roger Federer, in the athletic world and it made him the number one in the game of football.
