The Portugal superstar was dead serious in his disdain for the sugary beverage – likely to the dismay of tournament organisers
Cristiano Ronaldo removed two soda bottles from the table in front of him at his pre-match Euro 2020 press conference on Monday before holding up a bottle of water to the room and declaring people should drink water instead.
Then, for dramatic effect, he rolled his eyes and said with borderline disgust, “Coca-Cola”.
The brand is an official sponsor of the tournament, but clearly, Ronaldo is not a believer in the health downsides relative to water.
