Following Argentina’s football triumph at the Copa America 2021, captain Lionel Messi has managed to accomplish a feat of a different sort – this time online.
According to the Daily Mirror, Messi’s Instagram post celebrating Argentina's victory and featuring a photo of him posing with the Copa trophy has become "the most popular Instagram post ever posted by an athlete," accruing over 20.1 million "likes" by 18 July.
"What a beautiful madness! This is unbelievable! Thank you, God! We are the champions!" Messi wrote next to the image, as translated by the newspaper.
