1 | Anthony Joshua
The Olympic gold medal winner and undefeated WBC international heavyweight champion is partial to a selfie but it’s his training regime and preparation that provides the intrigue. Showcasing all the latest innovations in gym fitness and strength training, it’s no wonder he keeps winning by knockout.
2 | Juan Mata
Who knew the Spaniard was as creative off the pitch? The Manchester United midfielder has an eye for an impressive landscape shot and proves he’s no stranger to the rule of thirds. Expect more impressive snaps as he embarks on the Red Devils’ Champions League campaign across Europe.
3 | Mick Fanning
It comes as no surprise that a man who spends the majority of his time riding waves and dodging the odd shark attack has one or two photos to share. The six time Australian surfer of the year has an Instagram feed brimming with perfectly timed surf shots as well as a host of photos that can be tastefully filed under ‘beach porn’.
4 | Rickie Fowler
Of all the golfers on Instagram, Fowler is the one to keep an eye on. If he’s not on the course then he’s most probably in a private jet on his way to the course. Expect pictures of greens beneath rolling skies and the odd snap of the latest golf gear.
5 | Gretchen Bleiler
Decorated winter Olympian Gretchen Bleiler’s Instagram is exactly what you’d expect from a professional halfpipe snowboarder, but better. Capturing some of the most idyllic snowscapes on earth, she also manages to put the much berated selfie stick to respectable use on the slopes.
6 | Valtteri Bottas
F1 driver for Williams Martini and Finnish baby faced assassin Valtteri Bottas’ Instagram combines his two favourite past times – racing and clay pigeon shooting. Providing all the sneak peeks from life behind the wheel, he also manages to keep a relatively modest selection of pictures for an F1 driver (take note, Jensen).
7 | Grigor Dimitrov
One half of tennis power couple (the other half being Maria Sharapova) and ranked 16th in the ATP singles world rankings, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov is one of the luckier men in the world. He also takes a well-composed photo on Instagram, albeit making sure he features in almost every one of them.
8 | Valentino Rossi
The Italian king of MotoGP is a must follow for all motorsport enthusiasts. While we doubt that many of the photos were actually taken on Instagram, Rossi puts together a collection of some of his most thrilling high speed shots while showing off some of his other petrol-head hobbies.
9 | Chris Froome
As he winds his way through some of the most challenging cycle routes the Tour De France has to offer, follow ‘Froomey’ as he captures it all on Instagram. Documenting his racing, photo by photo, in what looks like a never ending ‘leg day’, the British Olympic medalist and Tour winner snaps the odd bit of bike porn too.
10 | Chris Sharma
Although his name probably won’t ring a bell, Red Bull athlete and professional rock climber Chris Sharma has an Instagram feed that’s not for the faint-hearted. Described by NPR as the world’s best rock climber, his photos are stunning. Look away if heights aren’t your thing.
