The first 15 seconds of Cristiano Ronaldo‘s presser for a Euro 2020 game went viral as he removed two bottles of Coca-Cola — a sponsor of the tournament — from the table and replaced them with a bottle of water.
At a press conference ahead of the EURO match against Hungary, Portugal’s football player picked up the soft drink bottles and replaced them with a water bottle and appeared to declare ‘agua’, which is Portuguese for ‘water’, to insinuate that it was the preferable refreshment to Coca Cola.
It is important to note that Ronaldo never advertised Coca-Cola. Once Pepsi used his photo, but after this incident the company had to apologize to Cristiano. At the beginning of his career, Welshman Ryan Giggs weaned the striker off drinking soda.
The video of the press conference has been doing rounds on social media.
