Ronaldo had, during a press conference, put away two bottles of Coke he found on the desk and then told the world to ‘drink water’.

But the manager of the Russian side, Cherchesov, was not moved by the actions of the Juventus striker when he was presented to the media moments after their 1-0 victory over Finland.

The ex-goalkeeper picked up a bottle of Coke that had been placed next to his microphone, opened it and took several sips as he toasted Aleksei Miranchuk’s matchwinner.

Ronaldo earlier removed two bottles of the fizzy drink from the desk in front of him during his pre-match press conference ahead of their opening game win.

Coca-Cola's share price promptly dropped from $56.10 (£39.80) to $55.22 (£39.19).

A UEFA spokesperson added via SunSport:

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

Meanwhile, French midfielder Paul Pogba has stated that he has forgiven his friend Antonio Rudiger following their near half-time face-off during France vs Germany Euro 2020 clash, The Athletic reports.
