Notice that the rank below is established with the sum of followers on facebook, twitter and instagram. Numbers were picked up on March 14th 2014.

Ronaldinho Gaucho 14,664,190 8,620,823 0 23,285,013


You may have notice a new entry in the top 10 this month, Brazil’s football legend Ronaldinho Gaucho who’s taking the last spot instead of Roger Federer. Like the Swiss Ronaldinho isn’t on Instagram yet but he manages to top over 20 millions fans.



Otherwise the rank hasn’t changed at all compared to last month. Ronaldo is still leading the pack with a comfortable lead; however I noticed that Kaka has got the slowest overall growth this month among all the athletes in the Top 10. He still got a comfortable margin though before “The Rock” wins his entry on the podium.



Will Federer come back in the Top 1o next month? Well if he goes on Instagram he might!
