Euro 2020: Cristiano Ronaldo’s cheeky jibe at the Coca-Cola bottles in the UEFA Euro 2020 press conference has taken the world by a storm and Mahela Jayawardane now has been involved with it.

Ronaldo removed the bottles of the soft drinks and encouraged people to drink water. Social media has been flooded with posts as people praised him for his healthy food habit and lifestyle.

One of his fans posted on Twitter criticising Jayawardane and Kumar Sangakkara for being the brand ambassador of the beverage company. The user tweeted, “Really proud of you @Cristiano !!! We have celebrities those who promote this @KumarSanga2 @MahelaJay.”

Sangakkara didn’t reply to the tweet but Jayawardane was quick to respond. The former Sri Lanka cricketer replied to the user with a picture of Cristiano Ronaldo holding a can of the beverage.

He replied: “Oops!!! You did it again!! should do the sky dive with out the parachute next time.”

Ronaldo’s coca-cola dig proved too costly for the company as the valuation of the company tanked after the video went viral. Later UEFA warned all the teams and reminded them of the sponsorship obligations they have during the tournament.

Tournament director Martin Kallen said, “It is important because the revenues of the sponsors are important for the tournament and for European football.”

Portugal is set to face Germany in a crucial Group F encounter at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. The match will start at 9.30 PM IST.
