He has set all kinds of records on the pitch, but Cristiano Ronaldo is not done as he just achieved another milestone, but this time off the pitch.
The Portugal star once again proved he’s the greatest of his generation as he became the first person to reach 200m followers on Instagram.
The 34-year-old has more followers than pop star Ariana Grande, Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson, Latin star Selena Gomez and model Kylie Jenner.

Although he will turn 35 in a few days, Ronaldo is still playing an important role for both club and country. The former Real Madrid has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Juventus this season, while he will also lead Portugal’s title defence at Euro 2020.
