Kohli only Indian in Forbes 2019 list of world's highest-paid athletes

India cricket team captain Virat Kohli has once again become the sole Indian in the Forbes 2019 list of world's highest-paid athletes, announced on June 11.

Virat Kohli is ranked last on the list of top 100 athletes which is headed by Barcelona and Argentina football superstar Lionel Messi.

According to the Forbes 2019 list, Virat Kohli is estimated to earn $21m from endorsements and $4m from salary and winnings, taking his total tally to $25m for the last 12 months.

Notably, Virat Kohli was ranked 83rd on last year's list and has moved down to the 100th spot despite an increase of $1m in endorsements.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has led the Forbes list of world's highest-paid athletes for the first time, having unseated boxing great Floyd Mayweather.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who made the much-talked-about move from Real Madrid to Juventus last season, is second on the list with Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar coming third.
