Cristiano Ronaldo becomes first person to reach 500 million Instagram followers
By gaining 500 million Instagarm followers, Manchester United and Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo has smashed another record.
The world’s most popular user on social media right now is Cristiano Ronaldo. During an unexpected interview with Piers Morgan last week, the Portuguese superstar made headlines for all the wrong reasons by making fun of Manchester United’s owners, manager Erik ten Hag, and club hero Wayne Rooney.
After the explosive interview, Man United issued a statement saying they had started the process of responding to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. Ronaldo is expected to be fired from the team. He is anticipated to represent Portugal in his fifth World Cup match later this month.
On Sunday, November 20, Ronaldo reached the 500 million follower mark on the photo-sharing website Instagram. He now has the highest number of followers on the app globally.
With 376M followers, his longtime rival Messi continues to hold the second-most followers worldwide position. The two famous football players are the only athletes in the top 10 Instagram users in terms of followers.
