When we first heard that the first athlete in the world had reached 10 million Twitter followers, we expected to read a story about @KingJames, @TigerWoods, or maybe even @TimTebow. But, as it turns out, those three guys combined don't even add up to 10 million Twitter followers. So, who was the lucky guy? Well, a little bit of a sleeper. Despite the fact that there are a bunch of other soccer players who are probably more famous than him right now, Real Madrid soccer player Kaka (or, in this case, @KAKA) is the first athlete to reach the 10 million mark.

Good job, man. You're halfway to having as many followers as Justin Bieber.
