Ronaldo's Coca-Cola snub costs company billions: 'Drink water'

by News Update

Cristiano Ronaldo has cost the drinks brand Coca-Cola billions of dollars after he removed their bottles from in front of him during a press conference, instead telling people to ‘drink water’. What seemed a fairly innocuous move has sent the company’s share price to a $4bn fall. Coca-Cola is one of the official sponsors of Euro 2020. In a statement, a spokesperson for the Euros said ‘everyone is entitled to their drink preferences’ based on different ‘tastes and needs’.

I like it how drink water was pretty much muted but coca cola could be heard from a mile away 😂

I was sort of expecting Ronaldo to reach his hand into his pocket there at the end, bring out a drumstick and go, "KFC on the other hand is a ;)"

This is nothing less than a strategy of any other rival company.

Now all I need is one week of Ronaldo’s wage and I’ll be set for life!

The reaction after he said COCA-COLA is exactly the reason behind the loss.

MaroonmeisteR June 19, 2021 - 6:32 PM

I thought the decrease in share price was due to the coca cola dividend payout. This just coincided.

Katie Katie June 19, 2021 - 7:26 PM
