Forbes.com: World's Highest-Paid Athletes

No. 9 Cristiano Ronaldo

Total earnings: $42.5 million
Salary/winnings: $20.5 million
Endorsements: $22 million

Ronaldo has the highest soccer salary in any league at $20 million annually, including bonuses. But he earns even more off the pitch, thanks to deals with Nike, Castrol, Konami and others. He became the first player in La Liga history to score 40 goals in two diffrent seasons in 2012. The Portuguese winger has more Facebook fans than any other athlete in the world. (AFP/Getty Images)
