Messi Instagram post is most-liked ever

Popular News

A gallery of Lionel Messi celebrating Argentina's World Cup win has become the most-liked Instagram post ever, reports BBC. The footballer - who led his team to their first World Cup triumph in 36 years - received more than 57 million likes for his collection of photos. Messi's Instagram post scored over a million more likes more than the previous record-breaking post - held by a simple picture of an egg. The previous holder of the most-liked status was indeed an egg. When it first appeared it seemed to be some kind of protest vote against celebrity - people were urged to engage with the picture in the hope of toppling the then-record holder, Kylie Jenner. After the World Cup final, Guinness World Records posted a series of records broken by the victor, noting Messi had surpassed Germany's Lothar Matthäus for the record of most World Cup matches played, with 26 - as well as four other records.
