ESPN global sports fame list is out and India is feeling amazingly happy. A formula was given by the ESPN’s director of sports analytics, Ben Alamar, to rank the sports persons.
But the surprise does not end here. Along with Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni also has been ranked among the top 20 sports persons at the 13th position.
However, the list was mostly dominated by International footballers, like Cristiano Ronaldo, the world’s top-earning footballer. Only LeBron James, the American basketball star, separated Ronaldo from fellow footballers Lionel Messi and Neymar, who both play for FC Barcelona, La Liga rivals of Ronaldo’s Real Madrid. Tennis legend Roger Federer completed the top five.
