Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is now the most followed human being in the world on Facebook.

At Noon GMT on Sunday, Ronaldo had just over 107,105,000 likes, numbering 15,000 more than Colombian singer Shakira.

In October, the 30-year-old Portuguese superstar became the first athlete to break 100 million likes:

Of course, Shakira's partner is Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. You could say it was Real 1-0 Barcelona ahead of next Sunday's Clasico.
