Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo’s action of moving two Coca-Cola bottles during a press conference atEuro 2020 may have led to the brand’s stock prices dropping 1.6% as they went from being worth USD 242 billion to USD 238 billion, which is a loss of USD 4 billion; but it also ensured that the fans on social media had a field day with hilarious memes with the incident.
The Portuguese star did not appear to be a fan of carbonated soft drinks after he removed two bottles of Coca-Cola kept in front of him at a Euro 2020 press conference, encouraging people to drink water instead. The 36-year-old moved the cola bottles aside as he sat down to speak to the media ahead of their Group F opener against Hungary.
