Lionel Messi’s Post Celebrating World Cup Win Becomes Instagram’s Most-Liked EVER By A Sportsperson

 

Lionel Messi has enjoyed another small victory over Cristiano Ronaldo by claiming the most liked Instagram post by a sportsperson following Argentina’s World Cup final win on Sunday night.

In the aftermath of Argentina’s thrilling penalty shootout win over France, the PSG star took to Instagram to post 10 pictures of the celebrations in Qatar.

In the 17 hours since he uploaded it, Messi’s post has racked up a staggering 52 million likes, with the forward also surpassing 400million followers on the social media platform.

Messi accompanied the post with a caption that read: ‘WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!!!!! I dreamed it so many times, I wanted it so much that I still haven’t fallen, I can’t believe it……
‘Thank you very much to my family, to all who support me and also to all who believed in us. We demonstrate once again that Argentines when we fight together and united we are capable of achieving what we set out to do.

It surpassed Ronaldo’s post from last month – an advert for Louis Vuitton ahead of the World Cup in which the Portuguese star and Messi were seen playing chess that had accumulated 41.9 million likes.

Ronaldo is still the most-followed person on Instagram though, with a staggering tally of 519 million.

Last month he became the first person ever to reach 500 million followers on the social media site.

The Portuguese star leads the way in terms of followers with Messi a clear distance behind in second – the two are the only athletes inside the top 10.

Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, Dwayne Johnson, Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Khloe Kardashian and Justin Bieber complete the top 10.

Messi though is edging towards having the most liked Instagram post overall.

That record is held by Chris Godfrey, who uploaded a photo of an egg in January 2019.

The photo ended up getting 56.1 million likes, with the aim of surpassing the then-most liked Instagram post, a picture of Kylie Jenner’s daughter which had 18.6 million likes.
