Cristiano Ronaldo tumbles from 1st way down to 27th on list of world’s most-marketable sports stars as top 50 revealed | The Sun
CRISTIANO RONALDO plummeted from 1st to 27th in a list of the world's most-marketable athletes.
The 38-year-old pipped the likes of Serena Williams, LeBron James, Lewis Hamilton and Lionel Messi in last year's rankings.
But CR7 has tumbled down the list made by SportsPro and NorthStar Solutions Group.
They have crunched the numbers based on brand strength, total addressable market and economics.
And Ronaldo now finds himself behind several other footballers, such as Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski, Harry Kane, Alphonso Davies and Bukayo Saka.
The Al-Nassr striker also trails many women's players like Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Lucy Bronze, Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Alexia Putellas.
