It all added up to a huge $127 million for Messi, who eclipsed Ronaldo's $109 million earnings by a whopping $18 million.

The magazine takes money, salaries and endorsements from athletes between June 2018 and June 2019 to break down its list, which has been published every year since 1990.

The fourth highest earner on the list was Mexico's middleweight boxing star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez with $94m.

Serena Williams is the only woman in the top 100, earning $29.2m (£22.9m).

The top 100 includes athletes from 25 countries and their $5.96 billion combined earnings are up 5 per cent from the previous year when American boxer Floyd Mayweather was first with $430 million.

Athletes from 10 sports made the top 100, with National Basketball Association stars leading the way.

The President said that those who have appeared before the PSC so far are former officers or officials and not current officers. Sirisena told his police top brass on Friday that he would not allow any police, military or intelligence personnel to testify.

Last year, Adams was ranked No.86 on the top 100 list.

Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and boxer Anthony Joshua (both at $US55 million) were the highest-earning British athletes.

In the "top 10" of the classification are also football players Russell Wilson (79 million euros) and Aaron Rodgers (78.8 million euros), and NBA basketball players LeBron James (78.6 million euros), Stephen Curry (70.4 million euros) and Kevin Durant (57.7 million euros). The United Kingdom has five athletes, France and Spain have three, while Brazil, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Serbia and Venezuela all have two.

Brazilian PSG star Neymar ($105 million) completed a hat-trick of footballers at the top of Forbes' list, listed at number three despite earning $10 million more in salary/winnings than the Portuguese star.

Despite earning $9 million more in endorsements than his rival Lionel Messi, Ronaldo's $65 million salary was dwarfed by the Barcelona star's $92 million pay packet.
