Ronaldo snubs Coke at news conference, encourages people to drink water instead

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 an Euro Championships press conference, encouraging people to drink water instead.

The 36-year-old moved the bottles aside as he sat down to speak to the media before their Group F clash against Hungary.

He followed it by holding a bottle of water before shouting in Portuguese: 'Agua!'

In a statement Coca-Cola said “everyone is entitled to their drink preferences” and everyone has different “tastes and needs”.

“Players are offered water, alongside Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, on arrival at our press conferences.”

Ronaldo, who is famously dedicated to his health and fitness, scored twice in Portugal's 3-0 win over Hungary.
