Here's hoping property sale Rory will cash in on the green
Golfer Rory McIlroy is set for another big payday, this time from the sale of his luxury Florida home which has gone on the market with an asking price of $13m (£9.6m). This would net him a cool £2.6m profit on the property he bought just four years ago.
Figures like this show the phenomenal earning power of top sports stars which enable them to live in such exclusive properties. However, Rory's legion of fans will hope that this year he will boost his bank balance with more victories on the golf course, including another major after recent poor results. A return to number one in the rankings would be a welcome bonus.
