Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the first person to reach 450 million followers on Instagram.

Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed 450 million Instagram followers by becoming the first person on the planet to do so. In January of last year, the Manchester United attacker became the first individual to surpass 200 million followers on Twitter. The official handle of the social media site, which presently has 515 million followers, is second only to the Portugal captain.

Last season, Ronaldo decided to return to the Premier League after joining Manchester United from Juventus during the summer transfer window. Since his comeback, he has scored 18 goals in 30 games for the team this season. He finished the season as the league’s second-highest goalscorer, ahead of Harry Kane, Sadio Mane, and others.

His initial spell with the Premier League club came to an end in 2009, when he moved to Real Madrid, where he received legendary status and won every individual and collective accolade.
