Al-Nassr forward Cristiano Ronaldo has secured for himself another Guinness World Records title for the highest yearly earnings by an athlete in 2023.

This was confirmed in a post on GWR’s website on Thursday.

The former Man United star topped Forbes’ list of the best-paid athletes in the world for the first time since 2017 and third time overall.

Ronaldo is expected to have made $136 million (£107.5 M) in the 12 months prior to May 1, 2023, the date by which most sports seasons end.

He takes the title from Messi, who was the highest-paid athlete of 2022 with an estimated $130 million (£103 M).

His record-breaking income is comprised of $46 million (£35 M) in on-field earnings and $90 million (£68.5 M) in off-field earnings.
