The video is viral and trending on social media sites.
He then placed a water bottle and said ‘Agua’ which is water in Portuguese.
Ronaldo continued to encourage everyone to drink water.
He also didn’t look pleased with the presence of the popular soft drink in front of him.
Ronaldo is known to be one of the fittest athletes and is very dedicated to fitness.
This dedication is seen in his ability to compete against younger players at age 36.
As a result, Coca-Cola’s share price dropped from $56.10 to $55.22, taking a 1.6% dip.
The market value of the brand also went down from $242bn to $238bn.
However, UEFA is yet to respond to Ronaldo’s actions.
Coca-Cola is one of the major sponsors of Euro 2020.
Coca-Cola responded to the incident by saying everyone is entitled to their drink preferences.
This incident also shows how much impact celebrities have on the market.
Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, is also notorious for his Twitter posts.
The value of cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin and Bitcoin changed due to his posts.
