However, Portugal footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is way ahead of these two. He is the most followed athlete with 359 million followers while his arch-rival Lionel Messi is second with 277 million followers.

Earlier in March this year, Kohli also created history by becoming the only cricketer and first Indian to join the club of 100 million followers. Six months later, he then became the first Asian celebrity to reach 150 million followers. The latest feat shows his growing global stardom and he is one of the top 10 athletes who earns the most through promotional posts on Instagram.

Kohli is currently leading India in the ongoing T20 World Cup and India is scheduled to take on arch-rivals Pakistan in their opening encounter on Sunday. Kohli earlier declared that this would be his last stint as Team India captain in the T20 format.
