Cristiano Ronaldo may be known as a Rolls-Royce of a footballer and about the deadliest goalscorer of his generation, but the Portuguese icon is also a seasoned pacesetter and record-breaker. He has again added to his list of endless accolades, becoming the first person to reach 300m followers on Instagram.

Famed for his good looks and fashionista-impressions, the Portuguese record-goalscorer and captain is a long way clear of second-placed American actor and WWE star, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on 246m. Johnson’s co-American celeb, singer and songwriter, Ariana Grande is third on the list with 244m.

The only other account on the popular Facebook owned social media platform which has more followers than Ronaldo’s page is the official Instagram account itself on 397m.

Ronaldo’s football archrival, Barcelona and Argentina’s Lionel Messi, is 81m followers adrift on 219m, sitting seventh in the overall list of most followers.

The revelation comes after Ronaldo made headlines at the ongoing European Championship for removing bottles of Coca-Cola from his table during a press conference and breaking another record in Portugal’s 3-0 win over Hungary, with his two goals moving him past France’s Michel Platini as the tournament’s all-time goalscorer with a total of 11 goals since he made his debut in 2004.

Overall, Ronaldo has 106 goals for Portugal and trails only Iran’s Ali Daei (109 goals) for the most international goals in history.
