Virat Kohli is among the world’s highest-paid athletes, with the India cricket captain earning $24 million, according to a Forbes’ compilation topped by American boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. Surprisingly, the ‘world’s highest-paid athletes 2018’ compilation is an all-male affair with no women being making the list. Kohli, the only sportsperson from India to be featured in the list, is ranked 83rd with earnings of $24 million. Kohli, 29, is not just cricket-crazy India’s biggest name but is also one of the most popular athletes in the world, “boasting more Twitter followers (25 million-plus) than all but three active sports stars”, Forbes said.
