Lionel Messi now has 500 million followers on Instagram, only behind Cristiano Ronaldo

Lionel Messi, the celebrated footballer and winner of the 2022 World Cup and eight Ballon d’Or titles, has reached a new high point in his career, albeit in the social media sphere.

Over the past weekend, Messi’s Instagram follower count hit the 500 million mark. Before this achievement, he was already the third most followed individual on the platform, trailing behind only Instagram’s official account and his well-known football adversary, Cristiano Ronaldo.

In addition to his accolades on the pitch, Messi boasts the highest number of Instagram followers for any individual residing in the United States, a feat he accomplished as the star player of the MLS team, Inter Miami.
