EURO 2020 – Portugal vs Hungary LIVE: Why Cristiano Ronaldo got angry with Coke bottles in front of him?
The 36-year-old is very particular about the diet – and just the sight of Coca-Cola bottles in front of him made him angry and uncomfortable.
Ronaldo has a very particular diet routine and any kind of aerated drink is complete ‘NO-NO’ for him according to many reports.
Cristiano Ronaldo vs Coca Cola: Coke is a sponsor of Euro 2020. Spanish paper Marca reported that the company’s shares took a dive, and meant billions of dollars in losses.
The stock market opened at 3 pm in Europe. At that time, the Coca-Cola share was close to 56.10 dollars. 30 minutes later, when Cristiano Ronaldo and Fernando Santos stepped into the press room at the Puskas Ferenc Stadium in Budapest, stocks plummeted to a low of $ 55.22 per share.
The gesture of putting the bottles aside caused a brutal 1.6% drop for the company on the stock market. And in economic terms, Coca-Cola went from being worth $242 billion to $238 billion. Total losses of $4 billion.
Cristiano Ronaldo vs Coca Cola: Company issues statement: Coke has since issued a statement in response to CR7’s actions, saying “everyone is entitled to their drink preferences” and that everyone has different “tastes and needs”.
