But as the 36-year-old sat down in front of the media he noticed Coca Cola bottles in front of him.

Despite being one of the tournament's major sponsors, Ronaldo opted to make a point and move the bottles.

He then shouted: "Drink water".

Ronaldo, known for his dedication and longevity at the top of the sport, clearly wasn't impressed with the advertisement placement.
