morddwyd: Who is to be the highest paid sportsman on the planet in 2011? Who is going to earn more than a F1 driver, a golfer or a footballer.

I think you'll know but many on here will not. I bet it'll surprise them too, what!

A synchronised swimmer, perhaps?

Are we thinking of Tom Brady? $78m over four years.

I'll bet the insurance company had heart failure when they heard of his car accident!

I can only imagine it will be a NFL or NBA player, possibly Tom Brady as morddwyd suggests...

Clue: Last year he tied (joint fifth) with F1 driver Fernando Alonso on $35.000.000 a year, based on salary, bonuses and endorsements. Next year he will earn more than twice that.

That should be pounds not dollars, and the link refers to 2010, not 2011.

I stand corrected
