Former India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli has now become the first Indian to have 200 million followers on Instagram. One of the most popular cricketers in the world, Kohli has crossed this mark in just one year after breaching the 100 million mark last summer.
“200 mil strong, thanks for all your support insta fam,” wrote Kohli on his latest Instagram post.
Interestingly, Kohli is only the third athlete to achieve this mark on the photo-sharing platform after Lionel Messi (334 million) and Cristiano Ronaldo (451 million), who has the most followers on the app.
On the professional front, the 33-year-old cricketer had a bad season in the Indian Premier League. He is likely to return to the mix for India’s tour of England next month.
