"Thanks so much to the great Stephen Curry for sending me a signed jersey to congratulate me for reaching 30 million followers on Instagram. As soon as you get 10M I'll send you mine! " - via @leomessi on Instagram
What do you do when you reach 30 million followers on Instagram?
Safe to say not a lot of us have that many followers on social media. You know who does though? Lionel Messi. Just the perks of being a superstar soccer player and world-famous athlete, really.
To show thanks to his 30 (Well, actually 30.2 million, as of posting) followers on Instagram, Messi posted his first-ever kit that he wore with FC Barcelona, which coincidentally sported the number 30.
Quería celebrar los 30 millones de amigos que somos acá en Instagram dándoles las gracias por el apoyo y mostrándoles la remera con la que debuté en el FC Barcelona, que casualmente también llevaba el dorsal número 30. ¡Espero que les guste! ¡Abrazos! // I wanted to celebrate the 30 million friends that we are here, on Instagram, and say thanks to every one of you for all the support. I am showing the kit that I wore in my first game with @fcbarcelona. By coincidence, I was wearing the number 30. I hope you like it! Hugs.

Aside from that, Leo also got a special gift from another, world-famous superstar athlete who happens to also wear the three-zero.
That’s right, Leo got an autographed Steph Curry jersey, from the reigning MVP himself.
Muchas gracias al fenómeno @stephencurry30 por mandarme su camiseta firmada con el número 30 para felicitarme por los 30 millones en Insta. ¡ cuando llegues a 10 millones te mando la mía! 😜👍🏻 // Thanks so much to the great Stephen Curry for sending me a signed jersey to congratulate me for reaching 30 million followers on Instagram. As soon as you get 10M I'll send you mine! 😜👍🏻
Leo also said that once Steph gets his first 10 million Instagram followers, he’s got an autographed Messi kit coming his way. Pretty nice gesture between two world-class athletes.
Again, it’s just another case of greatness recognizing greatness.
