Hamilton tops Britain's sporting rich list

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton is Britain's richest sportsman with a fortune of £68m.

In a year when Formula One drivers claimed the 1-2 on the The Sunday Times, Hamilton was firmly established in the number one position.

Adding £8m to his tally in the past year, Hamilton came in with £68m, five million better than former McLaren team-mate Jenson Button.

The Formula 1 duo edged Manchester United and England football player Wayne Rooney, who is worth £60m.

Basketball's Steve Nash was fourth on the list ahead of Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand.
