Cristiano Ronaldo ascends to incredible milestone on social media–Kate Edwards

Real Madrid soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has exceeded 200 million followers on social media. According to the article, this is around three times more followers than leading American basketball star Lebron James, who is known to be the athlete with the most social media followers in America. In addition, the article also states that Ronaldo’s follower count is 80 million more than every MLS team and player combined. This is huge for Ronaldo and Real Madrid, because social media is such a large part of sports nowadays, and the more followers Ronaldo has, the more people are showing interest in him and the team, which can easily have an impact on the money that is brought in.
