Sports Illustrated have named the 50 most fashionable athletes in sport

Cristiano Ronaldo Presents His Fragrance 'Cristiano Ronaldo' Legacy

When professional athletes are bagging mega wages on a weekly basis, it's inevitable that many of them will splash the cash on clothing.

The fact of the matter is that fashion is a real passion for both men and women who, when they're away from the sports field, want to strut their stuff on red carpets and cat walks.

Ok, maybe not quite to that extreme, but you'll see many footballers, as well as big names in American sports, showing off their latest attire and outfits across social media.

And when they're commanding followings in the realms of millions, it doesn't take long for athletes like Cristiano Ronaldo to make an impression on their fans and their personal fashion.

Bearing that in mind, Sports Illustrated have taken on the challenge of wading through the Instagram profiles of top stars and decided which 50 are the finest dressed.
