“Rags-to-riches story”….”You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” quote by C.S. Lewis – Top 5 “in no particular order”


The retired soccer star played for top clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid during his illustrious 20-year career and amassed millions of dollars in earnings and endorsements, but his highest-earning year was actually 2014, the year following his retirement.

Becks earned a whopping $75 million (£58m) that year, and while he hasn’t made as much money of late, the former soccer player is still cleaning up, thanks to lucrative contracts with the likes of H&M, Adidas and Haig Club Whisky.


The classic post-retirement success story, former heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman struck gold when he launched his now famous range of health grills back in 1994 in the midst of his second comeback. The image shows Foreman fighting Muhammad Ali in 1974’s legendary ‘Rumble in the Jungle’.

By the time Foreman retired for the second time in 1997, his little sideline had developed into a hugely successful business. Two years later, he sold the naming right of his grill firm to Salter for $138 million (£107m). All in all, the ex-champ has earned $200 million (£155m) for the endorsement, eclipsing the prize money he won during his boxing career, and then some.


During the 1990s and early 2000s, supermodel Tyra Banks walked runways for all the big high-end fashion houses including Chanel, Dior and Givenchy, and appeared on countless glossy magazine covers. Banks was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 1997 until 2005, when she retired from full-time modeling.

Banks’ net worth surged post-retirement on the back of a super-successful TV career producing and fronting America’s Next Top Model, which ran from 2003 to 2013, and the Emmy Award-winning Tyra Banks Show, the talk show she created in 2005, which ran for five seasons. In 2005, the supermodel was earning $6 million (£5m) a year. By 2009, she was pulling in a cool $30 million (£23m).


Basketball icon Michael Jordan played an impressive 15 seasons in the NBA for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards from 1984 up until his third retirement in 2003. Now the third-richest African-American in the world after Oprah Winfrey and Robert F. Smith, Jordan has earned an absolute fortune post-retirement. His current net worth stands at $1.31 billion (£1bn).

One of the most marketed sportspeople in history, the basketball legend has made the bulk of his cash from endorsements, which include the Air Jordan sneaker range for Nike and lucrative contracts with brands like Gatorade, Coca-Cola and McDonald’s. Jordan’s ownership of the Charlotte Hornets has also boosted his post-retirement income.


An inspiring rags-to-riches story, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson kicked off his career in 1996 with just $7 (£5) to his name, but by the time he’d retired from full-time wrestling in 2004, the WWF superstar had made a pile of money.

The real riches though have come since 2004 mainly thanks to the Rock’s flourishing Hollywood movie career. In fact, according to Forbes, the muscle-bound leading man was the world’s highest-paid actor in 2016, earning a staggering $64.5 million (£51m) in just 12 months.
