The company gathered salary data from Business Insider, Forbes, and The Guardian in order to produce the calculator.

It would take Lionel Messi — whose current salary of £82 million a year could make him a billionaire in just 12 years — just two hours and 56 minutes to earn what the average Brit took home in 2017 (£27,600).

Messi also earns a whopping £14,039 just for playing 90 minutes on the pitch.

The calculator also compares the lifestyles athletes enjoy on their massive salaries to what you'll experience on an average one.

For example, on the average UK salary of £27,600, it would take you eight years to buy an average-priced house in the UK (£232,530), while Roger Federer could buy 205 average-priced houses in one year.
