Scotland’s John McGinn made light of Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo taking off Coca-Cola bottles from in front of him during a Euro 2020 press conference.
“Any Coke?” asked McGinn before laughing as he sat down for a press conference on Thursday. Scotland face England in their next match in the European Championship on Saturday.
Earlier, Ronaldo’s act of pushing aside a couple of Coke bottles in front of him staved USD 4 billion off the beverage brand’s market value. Coca-Cola’s stock price dropped 1.6 per cent, down from $56.10 to $55.22 after the Portugal captain’s gesture. The market value of the popular beverage brand dipped $4 billion from $242 to $238 billion.
Issuing a statement on the matter, Coca-Cola said, “Players are offered water, alongside Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, on arrival at our press conferences.”
Coca-Cola further said “everyone is entitled to their drink preferences” and that everyone has different “tastes and needs”.
France midfielder Paul Pogba later removed a bottle of Heineken from in front of him during a press conference.
