Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has moved to the top slot above rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the annual Forbes list ranking of the world's 100 highest-paid athletes.

Tiger Woods ranked 16th in Forbes Magazine's annual list of the top 100 highest-paid athletes in the world, with five golfers finishing inside the top 70 over a 12-month span. That stems largely from his fight in August with UFC fighter Conor McGregor.

And where, we hear you ask, is the top golfer in the list? Thomas earned a scarcely-believable $21m on the course and is now the world's top-ranked golfer, but he has a long, long way to go before he can come anywhere close to the likes of Woods, Mickelson and McIlroy in off-the-course earnings.

In 26th place, Rory McIlroy is the next highest golfer.

Current world No.1 Justin Thomas rounds out the golf contingent on the list in 66th place.
