Another accolade has come Cristiano Ronaldo’s way as the Juventus ace tops the Instagram rich list of celebrities for the first time.
Cristiano Ronaldo has topped the Instagram rich list of celebrities for the first time since the list began in 2017.
The 36-year-old recently became the first person to reach 300 million followers on the social media platform and has proved his might yet again by topping a list of the best-paid celebrities in 2021.
According to Hopper HQ, Ronaldo earns around $1.6 million per post on Instagram. The social media marketing firm states he makes around $81,000 more than wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson, aka ‘The Rock’, who sits second on the list.
Lionel Messi, meanwhile, sits seventh on the list as the next best-paid athlete on Instagram after Ronaldo. The Argentine, who became a free agent on Wednesday, earns $435,000 less than CR7 per post.
Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is the only other footballer to make the top 20 list on $824,000 per post.
