Portugal skipper and talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his intense dedication to diet and fitness and the striker was in no mood to pander to the Euro 2020 sponsors as he removed the bottles of Coca-Cola in front of him during a press conference.

Coca-Cola is an official sponsor of the tournament and as seen in other tournaments they were on display on the table during press conferences, but Ronaldo could not bring himself to even look at the bottles as he swiftly moved them away.

The 36-year-old quickly got rid of the Coca-Cola bottles in front of him after sitting down and went on to bizarrely shout 'drink water' as he made his views very clear, before proclaiming 'Coca-Cola' with noticeable disdain.

Widely considered to be one of the fittest athletes across all sports at present, Ronaldo expressed his frustration last year that his young son doesn't necessarily possess the same obsession with his fitness that he does. 

"We'll see if my son will become a great footballer. Sometimes he drinks coke and eats crisps and it irritates me, he knows that. Sometimes I tell my son to take a dip in cold water to recover after a run on the treadmill and he says, "Dad, it's so cold there". That's fine, he is only 10 years old," he said ay the Global Soccer awards.

The 36-year-old is set to add another record to his name as he will become the first player to appear in five European Championships should he lead his country as expected against Hungary on Tuesday, 15 June.
