The Only Kenyan Cristiano Ronaldo Follows on Instagram

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most famous athletes in the world. He is also widely regarded as one of the best footballers of all time. If not the best, he is certainly among the elite group of his field. As of earlier this year, he has more than 200 million Instagram followers, making him the platform's most popular user. But that wasn't the last we'd hear of him. He now has over 480 million followers on Instagram and is continuing growing rapidly in popularity. The number of Instagram followers he has is still the highest of anyone.

As of this writing, Cristiano Ronaldo is only following 521 people on Instagram. Unexpectedly, he has started to idolise Kenyan citizen Eliud Kipchoge. Following his triumphant Ineos 1.59 challenge, Eliud Kipchoge became a household name around the world. He is considered not simply a legend, but the best marathoner in history. The fact that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of Eliud Kipchoge's 1.1 million Instagram followers may come as a surprise to many.

Other greats that Cristiano Ronaldo admires are Kobe Bryant (RIP) and Killian Mbappe. The football player clearly enjoys surrounding himself with outstanding and accomplished people who can serve as inspirations, as evidenced by his choice to include Eliud Kipchoge among the few people he follows. After finishing the Ineos 1:59 marathon, Eliud Kipchoge was hailed as a hero by many throughout the world.

As a result of his efforts, Eliud Kipchoge has garnered the admiration of even highly accomplished celebrities like Cristiano Ronaldo, who have gone so far as to follow him on Instagram. Ronaldo is currently only following one other person from Kenya on Instagram, and that person is him.
