Zlatan lands at 100: In the annual list by Forbes that looks at the highest paid performers and their earnings over the year, Swedish soccer sensation, Zlatan, comes in at number 100.

While he was beaten by Brittany Spears, who placed at number 89, the Forbes list shows that there is still a huge disparity between male and female performers when it comes to the money they earn. The hip hop artist Sean ”Diddy”Combs came in at the top followed by Beyoncé and the author J.K. Rowling.

Combining all earnings together, the highest paid performers brought in SEK 43 billion (a little over $5 billion). To put that into a Swedish perspective, all tax payers in Sweden received one tenth of that or 4.3 billion in annual tax refunds in 2017.
