Cristiano Ronaldo is the king of Instagram with the most followers and an eye-watering paycheck that not even the likes of Lionel Messi can rival.
Instagram has become a huge presence in the sporting world, with Ronaldo sitting on top as the world’s most-followed user on 239 million followers.
Being on top of this list has many perks, including an incredible fee of $889,000 for every post he makes, according to HopperHQ. The Instagram marketing firm estimates Cristiano makes $185,000 more than Neymar per post and $194,000 more than Messi.
On the upside for Neymar and Messi, they made the first three of Instagram’s sports rich list. David Beckham and NBA star LeBron James joined them in the top-five.
