2014 world championship favourite Lewis Hamilton is Britain's richest sportsman

According to the Sunday Times Rich List, which is to be published next month, the 29-year-old is currently worth around £68m, an improvement of around £8m in the last year, while former teammate Jenson Button is second in the wealth standings - but eighth in the world championship - with £60m.

Other than salary and prize money, the list is compiled by including all assets such as property, shares in publicly quoted companies and even art.

The highest placed footballer on the list is Manchester United's Wayne Rooney who has accrued £60m.

Rooney's teammate Rio Ferdinand is fifth overall with around £44m to his name, while 2013 Wimbledon champion, Andy Murray, saw his fortune increase by a whopping 25 percent last year to £40m, placing him sixth on the list.
