The world's highest paid athlete with a 'lifetime' Nike contract

Cristiano Ronaldo was already the highest-paid athlete of any sport and now he can add a new title: lifetime Nike athlete.

Earlier this week, Ronaldo signed a new "lifetime" contract with Nike. He is just the third athlete to sign a lifetime deal with Nike, joining LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

Ronaldo also signed a new deal with Real Madrid that will keep the Portuguese national with his club team for at least the next five seasons.

Find out how he earns his money and what he spends all that cash on by clicking through the slides above.
