The Sport Social Media Rich List 2021 Has Been Revealed

The Sport Social Media Rich List 2021 Has Been Revealed

Cristiano Ronaldo earns nearly $1.25 million for everyone of his Instagram posts, making him the richest sports star on social media.

It comes as little surprise to see Ronaldo top of the 2021 social media rich list, considering the Juventus striker is the most followed man on the planet.

The five time Ballon d'Or winner was already the most followed person on Instagram and last week earned the record of being the first person to have over 500 million followers across Insta, Facebook and Twitter.

So it perhaps comes as little surprise that, according to Bonus Finder, the former Real Madrid star earns $1,247,157.70 per post on his account.

That means that one post a week could actually beat his reported wage of $34 million per year, and he isn't the only footballer at the top of the list.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo - $1,247,157 per post.
