Budapest : Cristiano Ronaldo‘s action of moving two Coca-Cola bottles had a negative impact on the brand.
The Portuguese star did not appear to be a fan of carbonated soft drinks after he removed two bottles of Coca-Cola kept in front of him at a 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 ahead of their Group F opener against Hungary.
He followed it by holding a bottle of water before shouting in Portuguese: ‘Agua!’
