According to Hookit.com, a website that tracks the social media following of professional and amateur athletes, the Real Madrid superstar has 80 million more followers than all MLS players and teams combined.
If that wasn’t mind boggling enough Ronaldo also has three times the following of that of every Major League Baseball player combined.
The next closest athlete is Barcelona’s Lionel Messi with 122 million followers.
