Manchester United and Portugal striker, Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record by reaching 500 million followers on Instagarm.
Ronaldo is currently the most followed person on social media in the world. The Portuguese superstar made headlines for all the wrong reasons all last week, after taking part in a surprise interview with Piers Morgan where he directed mockery at Manchester United owners manager Erik ten Hag and the legend of Wayne Rooney Club.
Man United are set to fire Ronaldo after the explosive interview and issued a statement late last week saying they had launched a process to respond to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. He is set to play his fifth World Cup tournament with Portugal later this month.
On Sunday evening November 20, Ronaldo’s follower count on the Instagram photo-sharing app reached 500 million. This makes him the most followed person on the app in the world.
His longtime rival Messi remains the second most followed person in the world with 376M. The two iconic footballers are the only sportsmen in the top 10 most followed people on Instagram.
