The gender prize money gap in sport is closing with more sports than ever achieving parity at the top level, a BBC Sport study has found.

A total of 83% of sports now reward men and women equally, according to the study commissioned for Women's Sport Week.

Cricket, golf and football showed some of the biggest disparities although prize money for women has increased substantially in these sports over the past three years.

Other sports that do not reward male and female competitors equally according to the study are cliff diving, ski jumping and cycling events. Women are allowed to enter the world championships in darts and snooker but also have their own separate competitions, where prize money is a lot less.

It is the second time BBC Sport has carried out the global study, for which 68 sports' governing bodies were contacted with 55 responding. That study showed 30% of sports rewarded men better than women.

The 2017 study, which looked at prize money for world championships and events of an equivalent standard only, does not include wages, bonuses or sponsorship. It found that 44 sports pay prize money, of which 35 pay equally.

Men and women compete alongside each other in horse racing and equestrian events. Women do not compete in the winter sport called nordic combined, and men do not take part in synchronised swimming at the top level.

The victorious cricket team will receive £470,000 - up from the £47,000 winner's cheque Australia were given in 2013. There will also be £15,500 given per group-match win.

But the winning men's team at the 2019 World Cup will still be awarded six times as much prize money - £3.1m.

Sports Minister Tracey Crouch said: "It is encouraging that remuneration for sportswomen has improved and we are seeing greater equality in professional sport.

"However, there is still more work to be done to put women's sport on the same footing as men's.

"Women's Sport Week provides a fantastic opportunity to continue to raise the profile of women in sport, celebrate phenomenal female athletes and champion participation for women of all ages and backgrounds."
