Superstar Lionel Messi has another record to call his own. A post by the world champion after winning the final receives the most likes on Instagram. No celebrity or influencer had previously held this title – but an egg.

The newly crowned soccer world champion Lionel Messi has now also reached a milestone on Instagram. A post by the 35-year-old with photos showing him and the World Cup trophy celebrating after winning the final against France on Sunday received more than 56.2 million likes on the social network by the morning, and the trend was rising.

With this, Messi overtook the post from the account “world_record_egg”, which was previously considered the most liked Instagram post. The photo of an egg was posted on January 4, 2019 with the aim of setting a world record. By mid-morning it had received more than 55.9 million likes. One of the uses of the egg’s awareness was a mental health campaign.

Meanwhile, the team around Lionel Messi has arrived at home. With a slight delay, the Argentines landed in Buenos Aires in the middle of the night. With the World Cup trophy in hand, the medal around his neck and a beaming smile, Messi was the first to step off the plane alongside his coach Lionel Scaloni just before 3am local time. A red carpet was rolled out at the airport for the players. Thousands of fans queued up late into the night to catch a glimpse of their heroes.
