  • The 20 top earning non yank athletes

    Is there any question what sport is the most popular on earth? Our International 20 of the top-earning non-American athletes is dominated by nine soccer players, all of whom benefit here from one of the worst exchange rates on the dollar in years. Many have also been helped by the deep pockets of Chelsea billionaire owner Roman Abramovich, who is a George Steinbrenner on a global scale. (To read more about the soccer explosion on the 20, click here.)

    Meanwhile, the retirement of reigning international king Michael Schumacher has opened the door for another Formula One superstar, Fernando Alonso. He may not be a household name yet, but he's gaining fast. (To read more on the Spanish ace, click here.) The rest of the International 20 is made up of golf and tennis stars, an Italian motorcycle-racing icon and five other athletes who make their living in U.S.-based leagues.
    The first 5 are Alonso, Ronaldinho, Federer, Valentino Rossi, Beckham (in that order, with Alonso on top)

    Beckham getting lots of cash

    PD: I think Alonso is quite famous, Rossi and the japanese baseballers are the only ones I did not know.

    It's not Beckham's fault he's an advertisers wet dream. I'd take the cash too.

          Ralf Schumacher
          Auto Racing
          Germany
          TOTAL: $18,000,000

          But that probably doesn't include all his endorsements...
          How much did he earn on the circut last year?

            I meant Michael Schumacher (Ralf's brother).

            He was even with Tiger in 2002, and earned about $9m less in 2004.

              Ralf Schumacher must be the most overpaid sportsman on the planet.
