Ghana - Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is Africa's highest paid sportsman, according to the latest figures from ESPN The Magazine's Money Issue salary survey project.
The list is likely to draw controversy, as other financial reports had placed Ivorian star Yaya Toure at the top of the list. However, this list comprises the earnings that represent salary and/or prize money from the 2011 calendar year or most recent season.
