Cristiano Ronaldo is so rich that he never has to worry about whether or not guacamole is a feasible investment for his burrito, even though it's Friday and you've been working really hard and you deserve it...you do!

He's so rich that, actually, he could order that burrito with double guacamole and then throw it in the bin and then pay everyone in the restaurant to fight each other, using their burritos as weapons. That's the kind of power you wield with $93 million rolling into your account every year...ninety-three million.

Freshly announced by Forbes, the top 10 highest-earning athletes sees Ron come out on top by some distance, which isn't too surprising considering that he has a line of hotels, a denim, underwear and fragrance range and is Nike's football poster boy. He also earns a bit from the whole football day job ($465,712.63 a week in case you were wondering).
