Cristiano Ronaldo has broken so many records, but he’s not done yet with record breaking. He intends to break as many records as his longevity would allow.
After getting over 50 million likes on Facebook, and over 13 million followers on Twitter, Cristiano Ronaldo is now regarded as the most popular footballer and the first sportsman to reach the 50 million likes mark on Facebook.
Speaking on his record-breaking feat, Ronaldo appreciated his fans for always being there.
“Reaching 50.000.000 likes on Facebook is unbelievable …I want to thank you, you you, you and everyone who have been supporting me all these years,” Ronaldo posted on his whosay.com page.
“I really want us to keep sharing all the good moments together – and the best is still to come. THANK YOU ALL.”
As much as Ronaldo is happy with his achievements, nothing would make him happier now that winning the Ballon d’or which most followers of the game of football are indecisive on who deserves it; Ronaldo or Messi.
