Portuguese football maestro, Cristiano Ronaldo, is one of the most influential people in the world. The football star just proved how influential he is after he caused the market value of Coca-cola to drop by $4 billion with a single gesture.
Cristiano is known to be a health fanatic who does not play when it comes to taking in the right fluids. He has already shared his views on the coca-cola carbonated drinks a while ago and it was no surprise when he moved two coca-cola bottles that were placed in front of him to the side.
Ronaldo then lifted a bottle of water and said ‘Agua’ which means water. This seemed to tell his fans that they should choose water over coca-cola.
This simple move has proven to have a costly effect as the share price of coca-cola has also dropped from $56.10 to $55.22, with the market share dropping by $4 billion.
It is to be noted that Ronaldo is a social media giant with over 300 million followers on Instagram alone.
The French star, Paul Pogba also did a similar thing by lifting Heineken bottle off the table in front of him out of sight.
