David Beckham is the richest British sportsman in the world as he tops the Sunday Times Sport Rich List(£).

The footballer who currently plays for Paris St Germain has amassed a personal fortune of £165 million, not including his wife's personal fortune of an estimated £35 million.

Wayne Rooney is currently the richest Barclay's Premier League player with a personal fortune of £51 million.

But both footballers are very far away from the world's richest sportsman - Tiger Woods, who is worth £570 million.
