June 12, 2019 -- American business magazine Forbes has released the World’s Top 100 highest paid athletes, with Barcelona star Lionel Messi topping the rankings. The Argentine forward earned $127m in salary and endorsements over the past 12 months, surpassing soccer rivals Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

The Forbes Top 100 includes athletes from 25 countries and $4bn combined earnings -- which are up 5% from the previous year -- despite 2018 highest earner, boxer Floyd Mayweather, no longer featuring in the acclaimed list. Grand Slam tennis star, Serena Williams, is the only woman in the Top 100, earning $29.2m.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
