The brand is an official sponsor of the Euro 2020 tournament, but the player didn’t compromise over his health and seemed too serious in his contempt for the sugary beverage.
Taking his gesture pragmatically, Ronaldo has always been a health conscious throughout his career. From being the fittest athlete to inspiring people about the importance of health, his diet and his exercise are main reasons why the instance with the striker is different from other footballers who struggle at his age. The 36 years old was recently seen running box to box and cover more than 60 meters within 7 seconds in the friendly match against Spain, that appraised his fitness.
Cristiano is not friendly of ultra-processed food. He wouldn’t like it if his son consumes the same product to which he is a loyal consumer.
“We will see if my son becomes a great player because he has a great potential. He drinks Coca-Cola and eats french fries. I don’t like it and he knows it but still he does it,” Cristiano in an interview in 2020.
"My son has potential, We’ll see if he will become a great footballer. Sometimes he drinks coke and eats crisps and it irritates me. I just want him to be the best in whatever he chooses to do. I always tell him, hard work is the most important.” pic.twitter.com/PfYtti0tVt
