After years of dominating the football field and accumulating numerous accolades, Cristiano Ronaldo has once again demonstrated his unparalleled determination to succeed and outshine his peers. He has achieved the title of the “most searched athlete” in the history of Google.
At the age of 38, Cristiano Ronaldo boasts five Ballon d’Or awards and multiple Champions League titles. Despite his remarkable on-field successes, his recent triumph lies in his online dominance, as indicated by Google’s statistics, as reported by goal.com.
Sharing the news on social media, Ronaldo posted a video where he echoed his well-known celebratory phrase, “siu.” The caption on his Instagram account expressed gratitude for being honored as the most searched athlete in Google’s history.
This achievement doesn’t come as a surprise given Ronaldo’s immense online presence. He commands approximately 615 million followers on Instagram alone, surpassing his longtime rival Lionel Messi, whose Instagram account has 495 million followers.
While Ronaldo and Messi are frequently compared on the field, it appears that the Portuguese striker has no parallel when it comes to capturing the attention of the masses. The Al Nassr star enjoys unwavering support worldwide and holds the title of the leading goal scorer in the history of men’s football.
In the year 2023 alone, Ronaldo has scored an impressive 50 goals, surpassing other notable players like Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, and, of course, Messi, making him the highest goal scorer in this calendar year.
