As Cristiano Ronaldo enjoys a hot streak on the pitch with Real Madrid, he also just cracked a couple impressive milestones online. 

The Portuguese soccer demigod this week became the first athlete — and, in another interesting layer, the first male — to hit 100 million followers on Instagram, according to a rep for the social media app. 

The only other celebrities who can claim 100 million followers on the ‘gram are a quartet of female pop stars: Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez. But Ronaldo is the first person to rack up more than 100 million followers on both Instagram and Facebook, where he has more than 120 million fans. 

Ronaldo’s meticulously curated Instagram page features soccer photos, off-the-pitch adventures, frequent posts about his young son, and — because this is Ronaldo — plenty of shirtless pics that make fans drool and/or get very jealous of his physique.

Per an Instagram rep, these are his seven most popular posts to date.
