"The Sexiest Athlete in the World" Alica Schmidt claims that she declined "six-figure" sponsorship

"I got an offer from a well-known business two months ago. However, I wasn't entirely in favour of it," Schmidt said on the OMR podcast, as reported by the German daily Bild.

"That doesn't feel right to me. For a campaign, that would have cost in the middle to upper six figures.

Dubbed the "sexiest athlete in the world," Schmidt claims that the substantial offer originated from a "well-known" business.

It is strange that Schmidt would part with that much of cash, given the hefty sum he earns from sponsorship deals for German national team players.

The national team's athletes receive about $739 each month in sponsorship payments, which are processed through Sporthilfe,

the sports assistance organisation that finances the nation's athletes. Schmidt disclosed this information in October.
