Cristiano Ronaldo has been in the news for removing a Cola-Cola bottle placed ahead of him at the press conference just before Portugal's opener against Hungary in the Euro 2020. This act caused Coca-Cola to lose about 4 billion dollars. Now, Russian Football coach Stanislav Cherchesov took a jibe at Cristiano Ronaldo's act and instead of putting the bottle away, he was seen gulping down a few sips of the beverage. This happened after Russia's win against Finland in the Euro 2020. If one may recall Russia had registered a 1-0 win against Finland in St Petersburg.
