Cristiano Ronaldo reaches historic 500 MILLION social media followers while Georgina Rodriguez launches fashion range

CRISTIANO RONALDO has continued to set records on and off the pitch after reaching 500 million followers on social media.

The Juventus superstar became the first celebrity to hit the historic half a billion figure across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The 36-year-old pops up on 124m Facebook feeds, 91m users' Twitter timelines and his photos appear to a whopping 261m people on Instagram.

Other than Insta's own personal account with 386m followers, Ronaldo's page is the most followed of anyone in the world.


Even on YouTube, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner exceeds a million despite not using the account for four years.

Ronaldo's great rival Lionel Messi only boasts 90m Facebook followers and 183m on Instagram, while the Argentine doesn't have Twitter.

SunSport revealed last year that CR7 actually makes more money on social media than he does playing for Juventus.

Ronaldo saw an increase of £3.5m from his Instagram earnings last year from in 2019 by pocketing an average £971,000 per sponsored post.

Over the past year he promoted Nike, his fragrance CR7 Play it Cool and even an EMS training device called 'Sixpad'.

His partner Georgina Rodriguez, who regularly frequents his page, has also amassed 24m followers and is one of the fastest growing Instagram's.

Ronaldo’s Social Media Following

Instagram: 261m

Twitter: 91m

Facebook: 147m

YouTube: 1m

And the Spanish model has continued to branch out with the launch of her own clothing line.

Rodriguez is no stranger to the fashion industry having caught the eye of Ronaldo when she worked as a sales assistant at a Gucci store in Madrid.

The 27-year-old will be hoping her own fashion line is just as successful as Ronaldo's, as his 'CR7' range continues to grow.
