Pele is without a doubt the greatest Soccer player of all time! He made Brazil what it is today, and gave it a great reputation

The greatest soccer player of all time, a true sportsman and a legend, a fair player!

Pele is the greatest soccer player to set foot on the planet!

He must be on first because cricket is not a great sport

6Dhyan Chand

If you don't know how great he is please use wikipedia..

7Muhammad AliMuhammad Ali was an American former professional boxer. He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

His personality charisma pretty much dominated the sporting world. Greatest of all time. Surprised to see so many picked Tendulkar above him, especially since Ali's personality was the greatest in sporting history

Conquered the boxing world made him great, whilst also acting and speaking about the wider world he saw around him, equals the greatest

Ali is the greatest of all time but this moron who doesn't know who tendulkar is should go drown

He was simply the greatest sportsmen of all time

8Donald Bradman

Bradman was a freak of nature. His statistics are so way in excess of his peers that he has to be considered the greatest sportsman of all time.

Got the biggest average between 1st and 2nd. If he was an American or a European he'd be number one!

9Tiger WoodsEldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods is an American professional golfer who is among the most successful golfers of all time.

Tiger woods is by far the greatest sportsman of his time! and always ahead of the competition, think about it? Basketball, MJ had to train for, Muhammad Ali had to train, maybe Roger Federer comes in the competition, but Tiger Woods, Golf came very natural to him, he was playing golf at a professional like level at the age of 3! Yep that's right as an infant.

The greatest Golfer of all time! not world number 1 at the moment because of all this mistress crap! that shouldn't get in the way of his playing ability, he was playing golf at three years old for Christ's sake! Plus he is definitely a very good athlete and no one will ever come close to his ability, absolutely with great pride is the G. O. A. T.

the GOAT of Golfing! Tiger woods has had some personal issues but that should in no way get in the way of his playing ability. He will thump any Golfer in a Tour. Plus has won multiple P. G. A. 's

The greatest Golfer ever to walk the planet! And always will be! There will never be a golfer better than that of Tiger Woods, the legend and the champion!

11Lionel MessiLionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Lionel Messi - the king. Best football player ever.

Sachin Tendulkar at no. 1 spot. The reason is that he is from India, acountry with population of over one billion and will obviously get all the votes of Indians.
