Cristiano Ronaldo beats Neymar and Messi in Instagram Sport Rich List for 2018

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has once again got the better of rivals Lionel Messi and Neymar to top the Instagram Sports Rich List for 2018.

According to HopperHQ.com, an Instagram scheduling tool analyzed data to reveal a list of the highest-paid celebrities and influencers on the social media platform.

Hopper reveals that Ronaldo who has amassed a staggering 133 million followers forces brands to fork out $750,000 (£570,000) per post if they want their products to be marketed by the star.

Neymar, Messi and David Beckham and Gareth Bale join Cristiano in the top five of the sporting list.

Posts on Neymar and Messi's accounts would be worth $600,000 (£457,000) and $500,000 (£381,000) respectively.

Beckham

Beckham, meanwhile, could charge $300,000 (£228,000) while a sponsored post on Bale's profile would be a costly $185,000 (£141,000).

Ronaldo's success extends beyond the sporting world though because he has also made it into the overall top five.

The 33-year-old finished third in the global ranking, edging world-famous stars and renowned Instagram posters Kim Kardashian and Beyonce into third and fourth respectively.

Television personality and model Kylie Jenner boasts top spot with $1,000,000 (£762,000) per post while singer Selena Gomez takes the silver medal on $800,000 (£610,000).
