Frankie Dettori's race earnings have been calculated before his final UK outing – and the figure is enough to make your eyes water.
The iconic Italian jockey is set to ride his last UK race on Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday, with his fitting bow coming in the Champion Stakes.
The 52-year-old has been at the top of his game for almost four decades before his pending retirement – and earned more during that time than even some of the world's leading footballers.

According to OLBG, Dettori has earned the 42nd most in career earnings from leasing jockeys – with £153million.
That figure is £5m higher than Kylian Mbappe's net worth according to Celebrity Net Worth, who put the figure at £148m.
However, it has to be said that the France and PSG forward will earn hundreds of millions if not more during the remainder of his career, turning 25 later in the year.

Some fans remain sceptical over the future of Dettori having witnessed him U-turning over the end of his career in the past.
The bookies will be glad to see him go, with his 23 Classic victories estimated to have cost the bookies almost half a billion.
Saturday is sure to be an emotional day for the Milan-born icon of the sport, who is set to spend more time with his wife and five children from 2024.

Dettori said last year: "It's something that I've been thinking about for a while. This is going to be my finale next year."
"It is a very difficult decision because my heart wants to carry on riding, but I have had to use my brain and I've just turned 52 and next year I'll be 53," he continued.
"I want to be competitive enough to do my owners and my horses justice next year and I think I'm still in that bracket of being good. It was difficult, but it is the right time."
