RECORD: MESSI NOW HAS THE MOST-LIKED INSTAGRAM POST EVER

Lionel Messi is a champion in more ways than one.

The 35-year-old soccer star marked Argentina’s World Cup title victory with pictures shared in an Instagram post earlier this week.

One photo shows him holding the coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy; i another, he is celebrating with his teammates. The post also features Messi kissing the trophy.

As of Friday afternoon, the post has garnered nearly 72 million likes, making it the most-liked photo on Instagram, as reported by the Washington Post.

Messi officially beat out the popular “egg photo,” posted by @world_record_egg, and currently has more than 58 million likes.

The image earned the title of the most-liked photo on Instagram shortly after it was posted in January 2019. Before the egg, Kylie Jenner’s first photo of her now 4-year-old daughter Stormi Webster topped the list.

The picture, posted five days after Stormi’s birth in February 2018, had roughly 18 million likes.

Messi’s social media victory comes after saying he doesn’t plan to leave the international soccer stage anytime soon.

After speaking to TyC Sports after the team’s win, Messi explained, “I won the Copa America and the World Cup quickly. I love what I do, being in the national team, and I want to continue living a few more games being world champion.”

The statement was a reversal from what the superstar previously said about winding down his international career. According to The Athletic, Messi had said this would be his final go at the World Cup tournament after the team’s semi-final victory over Croatia, leading to speculation he would retire from the national team. “It’s my last World Cup,” he said.
