A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano)

His journey on Instagram is as follows

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo crossed the mark of 100 million followers on Instagram in May 2017. With this, he became the first person to cross that mark on Instagram and Facebook at the same time.
  2. Cristiano reaches the mark of 200 million followers on Instagram on 29 January 2020. During this time he was accused of having bots in the list of his followers. No such evidence is available to support this statement. However, he is the first sportsperson to reach this milestone on Instagram.
  3. Soon he crossed the 300 million threshold of followers with the record of the most popular figure given a personal account. The reason behind his huge fan following is a composition of a fairly vanilla public persona, a diverse fan base across the globe, and a degree of withholding from the public.
  4. Now he has become the first person to reach a record-breaking 400 million followers on the social media app. Instagram’s official account currently has 469 million followers, a little more than Cristiano. However, he is the first person to hold that place in the entire universe.

Nobody has forgotten the fact that his removing a Coca-Cola bottle from the table made the Coca-Cola Company lose more than 4 billion dollars within 24 hours. That’s the celebrity power he holds along with his followers. As much as he maintains his physique, he maintains his Instagram profile as well.

Hard work, high speed, demanding expectations, urgent goals…But in the end, it all comes down to family, love, honesty, friendship, values that make it all worth it. Thanks for all the messages.”
