(Relaxnews) – Celebrity soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo grabs a spot on Starcount’s chart of the top stars on social media list for the week of October 13-19. The Portuguese athlete hit a major milestone on Facebook last week.

On October 15, Facebook announced that Ronaldo had hit 100 million fans, making him the most popular athlete on the social network. Facebook marked the news by posting an infographic containing stats about the athlete’s fans, including the calculation that they could wrap around the world four times if they all joined hands.

Having been a fixture in Starcount’s chart during the World Cup earlier this year, he now rejoins the top ten, mostly thanks to activity on Facebook: the Real Madrid player raked in 630,147 likes and was talked about by 3.2 million people.

Starcount’s global social media chart for October 13-19:

1. PewDiePie
2. Taylor Swift
3. Ariana Grande
4. Katy Perry
5. Cristiano Ronaldo
6. One Direction
7. Justin Bieber
8. Enrique Iglesias
9. Shakira
10. Eminem
