Recently, Ronaldo caused a major dip in Coca-Cola’s share prices as he removed two Coca-Coal bottles from his press conference prior to Portugal’s opening match against Hungary in Euro 2020, although the experts have claimed that Ronaldo’s antics were not the cause of the major dip.

The 36 year old burst onto the football scene in 2003, with his high profile transfer to English football club, Manchester United. He has since gone onto win the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, UEFA Euro Cup and UEFA Champions League.
