Cristiano Ronaldo first to break the 200m mark on Instagram
The Juventus forward has become the first person on the social media platform to reach two million followers, ahead of Leo Messi and Neymar.
Cristiano Ronaldo has added another record to his considerable haul, although this one has nothing to do with his on-pitch exploits: the Juventus forward has become the first person in the world to reach 200 million followers on Instagram, a tally bettered only by the social media platform itself and a number that far exceeds celebrities including Ariana Grande, Dwayne Johnson, Selena Gómez and Beyoncé, as well as fellow footballers Leo Messi and Neymar.

Ronaldo still has some ground to make up on Instagram itself, which boasts 330 million followers on its own official profile, but the Portuguese can console himself with the vast sums of cash he generates via the platform. According to a study by Instagram marketing company Hopper HQ, Ronaldo pockets 900,000 euros for every sponsored post he makes, landing the Portugal captain around 48 million euros per year, more than earns as a player for the Italian giants.
