Portuguese soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has overtaken Spanish league rival Gerard Pique's fiancee Shakira as the world's most liked person on Facebook.

The Real Madrid star has replaced the singer Shakira with 107 million 'likes' - 5,000 more than the Hips Don't Lie hitmaker, whose partner plays for Barcelona.

Ronaldo tops a new list of most popular international athletes, well ahead of fellow soccer stars Lionel Messi, David Beckham and Neymar.
