Cristiano Ronaldo hits a historic Instagram milestone

Cristiano Ronaldo & Instagram

It’s been another unbelievable few days for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has virtually booked Real Madrid’s spot in the 2016-17 Champions League final after he scored a hat-trick against Atletico earlier in the week.

Cristiano’s latest treble has lifted the Portuguese superstar onto 400 goals for Los Blancos (or is that 399?), while he has already established himself as the front runner for the next Ballon d’Or.

Away from the pitch, Ronaldo’s brand has got even stronger this week as he’s reached a historic Instagram milestone.

100 million fans

Ronaldo has topped 100 million fans on Instagram.

He’s already got over 100 million followers on Facebook, while he’s close to 52 million followers on Twitter.

After breaking through the 100m barrier, Ronaldo posted a couple of celebratory videos on Instagram Stories.

What’s his competition like?

Ronaldo is smashing his fellow footballers on Instagram.

The second most followed player in FC Barcelona star Neymar with 74 million, while Leo Messi is third in the lis with a little under 71 million.

After that there’s a significant drop off, as Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez is fourth with a little under 31 million followers.

A list of the top 10 most followed footballers on Instagram are below.
