    What caught my eye about the women's list, and on the subject of what sports are popular in different countries, is the number 4 most famous female athlete in the world: Indian badminton player Saina Nehwal.

    There is also a second Indian badminton player, P.V. Sindhu at #18.

    I guess women's badminton is big in India and india is a big country. (Indian chess player, former world champion Viswanathan Anand is also icon.)

    I think they calculate it like this: Take the number of fans that follow him and multiply by how loud each one is.

    The footballers are global stars - but I would think a quite small percentage of Americans follow Premier League, La Liga, etc. and most aren’t familiar with most or any of those guys on the list.
