Cristiano Ronaldo has reached a new milestone on social media as the Portugal and Juventus superstar hit 250 million followers on Instagram.

The 35-year-old is the first person to reach that milestone on the Facebook-owned social media platform. He is also the most followed person on Instagram.

The number of followers Ronaldo has on Instagram shows he is one of the most popular athletes on the planet. Ronaldo also commands huge following in other major social media platforms as well, with the Portuguese being the most followed person on Facebook and most followed athlete on Twitter.

Ronaldo is considered to be among the greatest footballers of all time, and despite fast approaching his 36th birthday, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has not shown any signs of slowing down. He remains in great shape and has been impressive for both Portugal and Juventus.

He would be hoping to continue excellent start to the new season for Juventus when they face Udinese in their next Serie A match. The defending league champions are languishing at sixth in the points table, and Ronaldo and co will be hoping to turn things around for the Old Lady in the coming weeks and months as they aim to defend the title.
