“Victory is in the Mind. A long tradition of craftsmanship building trunks” reads the caption of the publication. The posts went around the world in moments. CR7, in just one hour, collected more than eight million likes! and almost 150,000 comments. La Pulga was not far behind, garnering seven million likes and 110,000 responses. Two beasts.
