From Dominic Shaw at ICS Digital:
Have you ever wondered how your salary compares to some of the biggest sports stars on the plant?
Following his sensational return to Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest earning soccer player on the planet according to Forbes.
Ronaldo reportedly earns $125,000,000 per year ahead of his rival Lionel Messi who earns $110,000,000 in the second spot.
NetBet came up with their very own salary calculator which shows you how long it would take Ronaldo to earn your yearly salary.

If you were to earn $50,000 a year, then it would only take Ronaldo just under TWO hours to earn that amount each day.
In total, the Portuguese star earns $342,465.75 per day which is almost SEVEN times the amount of somebody who earns $50,000 per year.
The calculator also allows you to compare your own wage against some of the other best players in the world such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
US soccer star Carli Lloyd tops the charts in the women’s game and other names such as Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe also appear on the list.
NetBet have also revealed which organizations make the most revenue per year, with a surprising result of Barcelona currently being top despite their troubles.
