Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli is the only sportsperson from the country to feature among the world's 100 highest paid athletes, in the latest Forbes list, topped by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. Forbes described him as the "Indian Cricket Phenom." Virat is said to have made US$ 1 million only last year, as salary and match fee. He is often compared with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and for "good reason," the magazine said. Tennis star, Serena Williams is the only highest paid female athlete.
