Sir Andy Murray is now worth £77million, making him the sixth-richest sportsman. The world number one in men’s tennis earned nearly £13million on court and plenty more off it to carry him to the total, the same number as that borne by his management company after he won his first Wimbledon 77 years after the last Briton to do so, Fred Perry.
Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Luol Deng completes the top 10 in joint ninth place with Guardiola (£50million).
Deng is Sudanese-British and came to London aged eight after fleeing civil war in his home country. He moved to the United States as a teenager and has played for the Chicago Bulls, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat before switching to the Lakers.
None of the top 10 richest sports stars saw their wealth decline this year, with the cumulative rise standing at £129million.
