Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook owner Meta, officially announced that it is “now the most liked in Instagram history”.

Messi won the World Cup for his country when Argentina beat France in Qatar. The player announced that it was his last World Cup game for his country. He had a brilliant World Cup, scored two goals for his country and was awarded the Golden Ball for being the best player in the tournament.
