Juventus announced last week that they had reached an agreement with its players to slash their wages over the next four months, and that will allow the club to save cost as the sporting world feels the economic effect of the coronavirus.

Kaka, who joined Real Madrid in 2009 together with Ronaldo, praised the Portuguese footballer for his desire to strive for victory and his mentality of never giving up.

A further 30 percent wage cut is on the cards with the Serie A frozen due to the pandemic but Ronaldo could still earn an estimated $46 million annual paycheck.

With the CR7 line of underwear and his earnings from various sponsorship deals, the 35-year-old could still earn something close to 100 million U.S. dollars this year as well. The five-time Ballon d'Or victor showcased his incredible core strength by averaging around three touches per second in his attempt. That success means he is still on the brink of taking his career earnings into the billions this year.

He was the highest-paid athlete a year ago, earning a whopping sum of $109 million (both salaries and endorsements). The Portugal worldwide already strengthened his claim when he became the first person to reach 200m followers on Instagram.

Three of Ronaldo's teammates at Juventus - Argentine star Paulo Dybala, Italian defender Daniele Rugani and France's World Cup winning midfielder Blaise Matuidi have all tested positive for the novel virus that has taken almost 65,000 around the world.

According to Forbes, a year ago Ronaldo earned $109m (£89m) including $65m (£53m) in salary and bonuses, making him the second-highest-paid footballer, behind Lionel Messi.
