Messi breaks Ronaldo record for most liked Instagram posts.
Lionel Messi’s Instagram post celebrating Argentina’s Copa America win has become the most liked photo from an athlete on the social media website.
The Barcelona star captained his national team to victory in the tournament with a 1-0 win against Brazil.
It is the first major trophy the attacker has won with Argentina, having previously lost in three Copa America finals and a World Cup final.
Messi’s post of him holding the trophy after the win in the Maracana Stadium has racked up almost 20.2 million likes on Instagram.
That breaks the previous record for a sports-related post, which was held by Cristiano Ronaldo.
