Ronaldo sat down at the press conference table, picked up the bottles of Coca-Cola on the table, before saying “Agua!” in Portuguese, holding a water bottle.

The company’s market value fell from $242 billion to $238 billion.

A Euro 2020 spokesperson told The Guardian that everyone “is entitled to their drink preferences.” They added that players are offered water as well as Coca-Cola at the press conferences.
