There's Not A Single Woman On The Forbes 100 Highest-Paid Sportspeople List

'You can't be what you can't see, and the lack of women in this list only perpetuates the myth that sport is a man's game.'

Forbes has released its annual list of the 100 highest paid sportspeople in the world, and for the first time since 2010, it doesn't include any women.

Serena Williams was the only woman to appear on the list last year, in 51st place with reported earnings of $27-million (~R343-million). However, the tennis star was missing from 2018′s roundup after taking time out for motherhood. Her daughter, Alexis Olympia, was born last September.

Charities promoting gender equality in sport have said the list reflects how women are "undervalued" in the industry, while Kate Dale from Sport England's "This Girl Can" campaign has raised concerns about what message the list sends to women and girls.
