Messi dethrones Ronaldo by becoming the new owner of Instagram’s most liked sports photos
Copa America, departure from FC Barcelona, signing for PSG … These three key events in the world of football have enabled Argentinian player Lionel Messi to beat the record for likes on Instagram.
Recordman! While Cristiano Ronaldo held the record thanks to his publication in tribute to the player Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi passed him in front of him a few weeks ago.
1. His first trophy with Argentina
With over 21.8 million likes on Instagram, the photo in which the Argentinian footballer embraces the Copa America, won on July 11 in Brazil, is the most liked photo.
2. His signature at Paris Saint-Germain
The cliché is closely followed by that of his signature at PSG. We can see Lionel Messi posing with his flocked jersey of number 30 on the lawn of the Parc des Princes. But also photos which retrace his arrival in Paris. The photo has been liked over 21.6 million times.
3. His departure from FC Barcelona
Emotion sequence. The announcement of his departure from FC Barcelona, the club where he played for almost 21 years, won 3rd place in the ranking of the most liked sports photos on Instagram. This publication, accompanied by a farewell text and several photos including all the trophies conquered under the red and blue jersey has collected more than 20.9 million likes.
And it is not over for the record holder for the number of Golden Balls! Less than a week after coming to the capital, the Parisian club benefited from the arrival of its new recruit and recorded more than 10 million new subscribers.
