Despite being in the spotlight due to controversial rape allegations, Cristiano Ronaldo has seen a steep increase in followers to his official Instagram account. Have you seen it?
"CR7" has been branded as one of the most marketable footballers on the planet, with The Sun reporting his following on Instagram has only grown since he was accused of rape last year.
The ex-Real Madrid great swiftly denied the allegations, with accuser Kathryn Mayorga claiming the incident took place in 2009.
According to InfluencerDB.com, Ronaldo gained more than 13 million followers on Instagram since the rape allegations, and now boasts more than 155 million followers in total.
After signing for Juventus this season, the Italian giants themselves have benefited greatly from Ronaldo's presence, having gained more than six million Instagram followers of their own since his arrival in Turin.
