C. Ronaldo Becomes Most Followed Person On Instagram


Cristiano Ronaldo has become the most followed person on Instagram on Monday.

The Juventus forward surpassed American actress and pop star, Selena Gomez, who has held the title since 2016.

The 26-year-old Gomez overtook Ariana Grande two years ago in a list, which is dominated by stateside entertainment stars.

But Ronaldo, who at the time of writing has over 144 million followers, has cemented his status as one of the most famous figures on the planet.

Months ago, he swapped Real Madrid for Juventus in a deal worth €100 million (£88.93m/$114m). Ronaldo has already registered seven goals and four assists in 10 Serie A outings for Juve.

Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is the next highest sportsperson in 10th position with 104m followers.

Reality television personality Kim Kardashian, pop superstar Beyonce, actor and wrestler Dwayne Johnson, Kylie Jenner and singer Taylor Swift complete the top 10.
