Tiger Woods has been replaced by tennis ace Roger Federer as the highest earning sports athlete of all time, according to Forbes.com.

Following his semi-final loss at last week's ATP Finals in London, the former world number one tennis star officially surpassed Woods as the top career prize money winner.

Prize money in this instance, according to Forbes, is via the PGA Tour, or on the ATP World Tour in Federer's case.

Woods has been out of action for the majority of the past four seasons, and last picked up a pay cheque in August 2015 at the Wyndham Championship.

The 14-time major champion will return to the game for the first since February when teeing up in the Hero World Challenge on November 30.
