Christiano Ronaldo has blazed a new record by crowning himself as the fastest sportsperson to stack up a figure of 1 million pounds, immediately followed by Lionel Messi on the list.
The list, released by Expert Market UK, has ranked leading players around the globe on the grounds of a figurative time taken by them to accumulate £1 million. Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the two football legends have surpassed other sportspersons of the planet to lead the list.
Ronaldo needs just 45 hours or 5.68 working days to earn the magnificent amount.
Messi, not much behind, can reach the mark in a trifle of 5.96 working days, counted on the 8 working hour basis.
American football star Joe Flacco sits on third, carrying a figure of 7.23 days for the same, succeeded by Formula 1 racers Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
Real Madrid player Gareth Bale is the only soccerer that features in the top 10 list after the first and second occupiers.
Among other renowned football stars that emerge in the chart is Man United star Wayne Rooney, positioned 13th, followed by Bastian Schweinsteiger; Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Argentinian Sergio Aguero at 18th.

She takes 31.84 days to touch the millionaire mark. The whole of the top 30 encounters a meagre of five women in all.
