Messi breaks Ronaldo's Instagram record

Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi

Triumph over arch rivals! Lionel Messi not only celebrates winning the Copa America, but also an Instagram record.

After Argentina won 1-0 against hosts Brazil, the Barcelona superstar posted a photo on Instagram showing him with the trophy in the dressing room shortly after the final whistle. The picture has already been “liked” more than 20 million times – a record for a sport-related post on Instagram.

The record was previously held by Messi's long-term rival Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese published a post in November commemorating the late Argentine football icon Diego Maradona. For this he received 19.8 million “Like” marks.

The two football icons are still a long way from the record of the most liked picture on Instagram. The “world record egg” holds that with more than 55 million likes. This is the picture of a bird's egg that was published with the declared aim of setting the Instagram world record. A hype developed around the photo, which resulted in the all-time record.
