Last week, football player Cristiano Ronaldo made it to the headlines by just pushing the Coca-Cola bottles ahead of him to the corner of a table. This act resulted in a four billion drop in the market value of Coca-Cola.
Yet again Ronaldo made it to the headlines but for some other reason. The Juventus player became the first person to have 300 million followers on popular photo sharing platform, Instagram. In fact, post the Coca-Cola episode, Ronaldo’s following grew at a higher rate than the usual one.
Ronaldo’s Instagram is mostly flooded with his football matches pics and then of his son’s Cristiano Jr. He also promotes his own brand CR7 through Insta and he mints money in all sorts which makes him one of the highest paid athletes in the world.
The 36 year old Portugese star will keep his record intact for a long time as Ronaldo is far ahead of many celebrities from all walks of life. Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson has 247 million Instagram followers and he is the second most followed celebrity on Instagram. Ronaldo’s rival Lionel Messi has 219 million Instagram followers and is placed seventh in the top ten most followers on Instagram.
