Three other Indians have been named in the list other than Virat Kohli

Other sports figures joining Watt include National Basketball Association star Kevin Durant, tennis legend Roger Federer, Olympians Adam Rippon and Chloe Kim, former gymnast Rachael Denhollander and cricket player Virat Kohli.

This is the first time that Kohli has made his way into the elusive list and joins the likes of Roger Federer, Chloe Kim, Kevin Duran as some of the other athletes featuring this year.

Federer, who is on the cover of the magazine, experienced a career resurgence when he returned to action past year as he turned back the clock and won a total of seven titles, including the Australian Open and a record-breaking 10th Wimbledon crown - his first Grand Slam wins since 2012. The 20-time Grand Slam singles champion won the Australian Open and Wimbledon previous year, and he already has another Aussie Open title to his credit in 2018.

India captain Virat Kohli earned yet another accolade in his glittering career after being named as one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in 2018. Federer has been awarded for his charitable work, as his foundation, created in 2004, will reach one million children within the end of the year. Gates, who played two charity exhibition matches with Federer, stated: 'I've learned how sincerely Roger and his team are working to improve the life prospects for poor children-a mission that stems from his childhood visits to his mother's home country of South Africa and seeing extreme poverty firsthand. Gates, in his write-up, describes Federer as "the greatest tennis player ever". "It will be a sad day for all of us fans when he hangs up his racket-but we can take comfort in knowing that he's committed to making the world a more equitable place".

Kevin Durant isn't just an incredible basketball player; he's an incredible human too. "His generosity knows no bounds", Cue wrote.
