Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently finalised a big-money move to Juventus, tops the list followed by fellow footballers Neymar, Lionel Messi, David Beckham, Gareth Bale, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Luis Suarez.

UFC fighter Conor McGregor, whose last fighting bout of any note was the exhibition boxing match against Floyd Mayweather, finds himself in eighth position.
