As the incident goes, Cristiano had come to the media during a conference ahead of their Group F opener against Hungary. Before starting the series of questions and answers, Cristiano removed the two bottles of Coca-Cola as he picked them up and put them aside. He followed the gesture by holding a water bottle and shouting ‘Agua’ in Portuguese.
According to a report in The Sun, the soft drink company has since issued a statement based on Cristiano’s gesture saying, “everyone is entitled to their drink preferences” and that everyone has different “tastes and needs”. A spokesperson added, “Players are offered water, alongside Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, on arrival at our press conferences.”
Ronaldo, 36, is one of the fittest athletes in the game. He is known to be keeping a rather strict diet and workout regime to perform excellently on the football field. Recently Ronaldo scored two goals against Hungary and went ahead of France’s Michel Platini to become a record goalscorer and take his tally to 11.
