He has produced mind-blowing statistics during his career. The former Barcelona forward has scored more goals than anyone in LaLiga, and has more followers on Instagram than anyone else. His impressive stats also make him an influential influence on billions of people. Recently, he transferred to Paris Saint-Germain, which increased his Instagram followers by nearly 40 million.
Another athlete with a huge following on the social network is footballer Virat Kohli, who has more than 173 million followers. Like Messi, he has embraced social media and continues to post photos to engage with his fans. Meanwhile, seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi posts daily updates to his Instagram account. While Messi may not have the biggest following, he is far ahead of his closest rival Cristiano Ronaldo, with more than four hundred million followers.
Another famous sportsperson is Brazilian soccer player Neymar, who has over 100 million followers on Instagram. The football star has made himself one of the world’s most marketable athletes.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the most followed Asian sportsperson on Instagram
The king of football has more Instagram followers than Instagram itself, and that is a testament to his popularity. Cristiano Ronaldo is the most followed Asian footballer, with more than 400 million followers. It’s not surprising that Cristiano is a top celebrity – he’s won five Ballon d’Or awards, four Champions Leagues, two La Ligas, and three Premier Leagues.
In addition to being the most popular athlete on Instagram, Cristiano is married to Georgina Rodriguez, the wife of a soccer player. He regularly shares snaps of their family life, as well as pictures and videos from his training sessions. If all footballers on Instagram had this many followers, Portugal would be the third-most-populated nation in the world. Kylie Jenner is the youngest Kardashian-Jenner sister, who shot to fame with her appearance on the reality TV show, The Kardashians.
The king of Instagram has reached 330 million followers and charges more than Rs 11 crore per sponsored post. Dwayne “Rock” Johnson, who was the highest-paid Instagram celebrity, is now second. While the star is a popular athlete, his popularity has also made him one of the most expensive influencers. With more than 300 million followers on Instagram, Cristiano is arguably the world’s most popular footballer.
Aside from being the most popular individual on Instagram, Cristiano Ronaldo is also the most followed athlete on Instagram. He has more followers than many countries. He is the most followed sportsman after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Those are just a few of the many celebrities and athletes who have made their Instagram accounts popular. But don’t let their fame fool you. They aren’t the most popular athletes on the planet.
While the two Indian batsmen share a close bond on the field, they do not follow each other on social media. But that doesn’t mean they do not share an affinity off the field. They are both in the midst of a great alliance as both have taken Indian cricket to new heights. Currently, both are leading their respective franchises in the eleventh season of the Indian Premier League. Tomorrow, they will go head-to-head in the 31st match of the league.
While Kohli doesn’t seem to be following Rohit on Instagram, the Indian captain does have an affinity for Sharma’s work. Kohli recently liked a post by Rohit on Twitter referring to the former teammate. Rohit followed Kohli on Instagram for some time now. After India lost the ICC World Cup to New Zealand, rumors about rifts between the two players surfaced. But Rohit Sharma’s love affair with Kohli’s partner, KL Rahul, is still strong.
But it is not all bad news. Earlier, Rohit Sharma had a rift with Anushka Sharma. While Kohli’s wife had been involved in a tiff during India’s tour of England, Rohit Sharma was not. However, the photo of Anushka in the first row of the cricket team had received mixed reviews and critics. Rohit’s recent tweet about a mystic twittling left many fans puzzled.
While Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma is not following Kohli on Instagram, Rohit follows her. It is not clear if they are still dating, but they seem to be good buddies. The former has more Instagram fans than his wife Anushka Sharma. In fact, he also follows Ritika Sajdeh’s wife, Ritika. The CoA has said that the issue will not be addressed unless the players’ input is sought.
Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina has recently joined the popular social media app MX Takatak. The app has gained tremendous popularity in recent years, and is now the official short video partner of seven teams in the IPL 2021. Suresh Raina’s followers have reportedly been captivated by the posts made by their favorite cricketer. So, why is Suresh Raina following Virat Kohli on Instagram?
After all, the senior opener has a massive fan base and is one of the most popular players in the shortest format of the game. However, fans of the former India captain may not be so excited to see that he follows the legendary cricketer on Instagram.

Indian T20 sensation, Hardik Pandya, is one of the most popular cricketers on Instagram. He has over 18 million followers. The all-rounder, who is playing for Mumbai Indians, has become a fashion icon thanks to his flashy outfits and bling. While Kohli is a cricket icon and has a lot of followers, Pandya has made a name for himself through his Instagram account.
