(Reuters) – Cristiano Ronaldo does not appear to be a fan of carbonated soft drinks after the Portugal captain removed two bottles of Coca-Cola kept in front of him at Monday’s Euro 2020 press conference, encouraging people to drink water instead.
The 36-year-old moved the cola bottles aside as he sat down to speak to the media before Tuesday’s Group F opener against Hungary.
He followed it by holding a bottle of water before shouting in Portuguese: ‘Agua!’
Coca-Cola, one of the official sponsors of Euro 2020, could not immediately be reached by Reuters for a comment.
