Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo rejected soft-drink brand Coca-Cola during a press conference before his country's opening game at the EURO 2020 competition.
This happened on Monday, June 14, when Cristiano Ronaldo as the captain of the Portuguese national team was speaking to the media about himself and his teammates' preparation for the championship.
And while speaking to the people of the press, Cristiano Ronaldo spotted two bottles of Coca-Cola in front of him and he immediately moved them away and picked a bottle of water.
Over the years, Cristiano Ronaldo is known as a footballer who does not take sugary soft drinks and has never also been spotted with alcohol.
Years back, Cristiano Ronaldo made it clear that he won't be taking alcohol because of the effect it had on his late father who was an officer.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo went on to score two goals for Portugal in their first game at EURO 2020 as they kicked off their title defence on a winning note.
Earlier, Hungary vs Portugal ended in a 3-0 win as two late goals from Raphael Guerrero and Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace earned the defending champions maximum points.
The Selecao should have buried the game in the first half as Diogo Jota and Ronaldo missed scoring opportunities.
Liverpool star Jota had the first real chance of the game as he forced a left-handed save from the Hungarian keeper.
The 24-year-old also got himself into a scoring position after making a delightful turn inside the box but shot straight into the hands of the goalkeeper.
It was Ronaldo’s turn to miss a sitter as the Juventus forward could not keep the ball down from two-yards out.
