Published Add your comment

The Sunday Times have this week revealed a shortlist containing the top 10 richest sportsmen in Britain.

The shortlist is dominated by footballers as five Premier League stars feature in the top 10.

It comes as no surprise that three of the five are currently playing at Premier League champions Manchester United.

Manchester United are second only to rivals Manchester City when it comes to expenditure on wages - with several of their top earners hailing from Britain.

Formula One drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, a recent Wimbledon winner and two NBA stars make up the shortlist.

Click through the following pages to see who makes the shortlist and to find out who comes out on top.

Feel free to comment in the box below if you are surprised by the Sunday Times' findings.
