Cristiano Ronaldo Gets Guinness World Record Title for Highest Paid Athlete In 2023


Cristiano Ronaldo has been breaking records for years, and even at 38, he is still breaking records even as he enters the twilight of his career.

The Al-Nassr striker has earned another Guinness World Records title for the highest earnings for an athlete in 2023. 

The 38-year-old reportedly made a staggering $136 million in the 12 months leading up to May 1, 2023. This is the first time the Portugal legend is topping the list.

He has dislodged his long-time rival, Lionel Messi. The 2022 World Cup winner with Argentina was the highest-paid athlete in the world in 2022, with estimated earnings of $130 million, according to the Guinness World Records. 

Ronaldo, who recently made a blockbuster move to Saudi Arabia, made $46 million on the pitch and $90 million off the pitch. The off-field earnings include sponsorship deals, appearance fees, memorabilia, and endorsements.

Kylian Mbappe came third with $120 million. NBA superstar LeBron James was fourth with an estimated earnings of $119 million, while boxer Canelo Alvarez was the highest earner in boxing with $110 million.

Moreover, stars Serena Williams and Roger Federer were the highest-earning tennis players despite retiring in 2022. Federer earned a total of $95.1 million, while Williams earned $45.3 million.
