Manchester United and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has attained another milestone by reaching 500 million Instagram followers.
The veteran footballer became the first to achieve this milestone.
The former Real Madrid star is currently the only social media user with the highest number of followers. Therefore, this milestone is traced to the direct outcome of the famous football player’s recent trend-following.
Ronaldo has been subject of mixed reactions throughout last week after he appeared in a surprise interview with Piers Morgan, where he reportedly aimed insults at Manchester United’s owners, manager Erik ten Hag, and club legend Wayne Rooney.
In addition, much has been said about the former Sporting Lisbon player recently after a photo of him with teammate Lionel Messi appeared online. The picture which was for a Louis Vuitton campaign, immediately became one of the most liked images on any social media network, with over 36 million total likes.
