    Benjamin Netanyahu is paid less than both David Cameron and footballer Yossi Benayoun.

    The Israeli Prime Minister revealed his monthly salary of 15,027 shekels (£2,700) by posting his pay slip on his Facebook page.

    Personal information was blurred on the slip, but the document suggests that Mr Netanyahu makes more than £90,000 a year.

    Writing in Hebrew, Arab and English, Mr Netanyahu told his 3,750 Facebook fans that he had posted the document online “to provide total transparency concerning my monthly pay slip”.

    His salary far eclipses the average Israeli wage, which is 8,357 shekels (£1,500) per month. However , Mr Netanyahu does not earn anywhere near as much as Mr Benayoun.

    Last summer the footballer became the most expensive ever Israeli player when he transferred from Liverpool to Chelsea to earn a reported £70,000 a week.

    The British Prime Minister’s annual salary is £142,050.
