Cristiano Ronaldo keeps breaking records!

It’s been another week of milestones for Real Madrid’s 30-year-old superstar, as last weekend Cristiano Ronaldo became the all-tie leading goalscorer for Los Blancos as he chalked up his 324th goal for the club.

As Ronaldo goes from strength to strength on the pitch, the Portuguese star has also become the king of social media this week.

Always keen to build his assists, Cristiano Ronaldo is constantly updating his social media statuses on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In recent times, Cristiano had established himself as the most popular football on both Facebook and Twitter, and in the past few days he’s also taken the Instagram crown too.

Barcelona star Neymar has for a long time held the most amount of followers on the picture sharing site, but Ronaldo has now surpassed him.

According to the latest reading, Neymar has 33.3 million followers on Instagram, while Ronaldo has moved onto 33.5 million followers.
