Wag hotlist reveals 10 highest earners on social media with Shakira beating Victoria Beckham to top spot – The Sun
GERARD Pique's missus Shakira has beaten off competition from Victoria Beckham and Gisele to become the top-earning Wag on social media.
Collecting millions of followers on Instagram is a very lucrative business and can help sports' stars better halves more than match them in the cash stakes.
Unsurprisingly, Colombian superstar Shakira was the resounding number one, according to Golf Support and the Influencer Marketing Hub.
The 42-year-old is even more successful than footballer husband Pique, and has nearly FOUR times the number of Instagram followers as the Barcelona defender.
Her posts are estimated to be worth an eyewatering £123,355.
A distant second is former Spice Girl-turned businesswoman and fashion designer Victoria Beckham.
The 45-year-old makes up half of one of Britain's most influential power-couples.
And posts to her 27.3 million Instagram followers are believed to be worth a cool £55,991.
Posts regularly include family snaps, as well as one recently with Kourtney and Kim Kardashian.
And even though David retired six-and-a-half years ago, the Beckhams are certainly still go going strong with their off-the-pitch ventures.
So fun to perform today!!! Thanks to the wonderful team that worked so hard and made this performance happen today! @daviscupfinals

La La Anthony, wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony is at number four in the list.

Actress and TV personality Kristin Cavallari is married to former NFL star Jay Cutler.
And the former Laguna Beach regular can boast a valuation of £7,770 per post – putting her at number six on the list.
At number seven is another country singer, Eric Ducker's wife, Jessie James Decker.
The pair wed in 2013 when Eric played for the Denver Broncos – and the 31-year-old singer's Insta snaps are now worth £6,522.
Iker Casillas and his wife Sara Carbonero have had to endure a horrific year of health scares.
The legendary Porto goalkeeper suffered a heart attack back in May – while TV presenter Carbonero was suffering with ovarian cancer.
Mercifully the pair have survived, with Casillas now back in light training, and Carbonero having recently finished her chemotherapy.
Spanish magazine Hola have claimed that Carbonero is targeting a 2020 full of "weddings and hen parties", which should be perfect for her 2.6million Insta followers.
