This is due to the rise of bot accounts on social media.

For every sponsored post that Ronaldo – the most popular person on the photo-sharing app – uploads to Instagram, data complied by livefootballtickets.com suggests that he earns a staggering £1.69million.

But if 92 million of his followers are fake, that would mean that £388,000-per-post is earned due to bot accounts.

Ronaldo, 37, is one of the most marketable athletes in the world and has posted his fair share of content.

The Manchester United star also posted about hair transplant clinic Insparya.

Ronaldo isn’t the only athlete that is estimated to earn plenty of revenue through being followed by bot accounts.

Lionel Messi is thought to have around 70 million fake Instagram followers, pocketing him £287k-per-post.

Neymar is next up with 34 million estimated fake followers and £140k-per-post, while his PSG team-mates Kylian Mbappe and Sergio Ramos reportedly net £52k and £47k respectively because of bots for each upload.

Gareth BaleZlatan Ibrahimovic and Karim Benzema are then predicted to pocket £45k respectively from each post, while Liverpool star Mo Salah nets £41k.
