Ronaldo Becomes 1st Person To Reach 600M Instagram Followers
Aug 14 2023 Share

Cristiano Ronaldo has achieved a remarkable milestone, becoming the first individual to amass 600 million followers on Instagram. 

This football legend has become the most followed person on the social media platform, trailing only Instagram itself, which boasts 650 million followers.

Notably, Ronaldo significantly surpasses his real-world rival, Lionel Messi, who holds 482 million followers on Instagram.

While Messi’s picture of him with the Argentina national football team celebrating their 2022 FIFA World Cup victory holds the record for the most-liked photograph on the platform, both Messi and Ronaldo dominate the list of the top 10 most-liked posts on Instagram.

Their immense popularity is evident during key moments, such as Ronaldo’s announcement of twins or his relocation to Saudi Arabia. Even a minor setback, like losing three million followers in a day due to an Instagram outage, barely makes a dent in Ronaldo’s colossal follower count.

To put his Instagram following in perspective, if Ronaldo’s followers constituted a country, it would be the third most populous in the world, ranking just below China and India. 

His Instagram followers even outnumber the entire population of the European Union. These two superstar athletes command unparalleled global attention and engagement through their online presence.
