Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has overtaken singer and actress Selena Gomez to become the most followed user on Instagram.
The 33-year-old Portugal and Juventus player now leads the way on the social media platform with 144.4 million followers, slightly ahead of Gomez’s 144.3 million.
Ronaldo posts regularly on Instagram, giving fans a glimpse into his gruelling fitness routine as well as pictures of his family and of him on the pitch.
Last month Gomez, 26, announced she was taking a break from social media.
In a post on Instagram on September 24, the US pop star shared a selfie along with the caption: “Update: taking a social media break. Again.
“As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given.
“Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings.”
