Star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo made the headlines after a video of him removing Coca Cola bottles during press conference went viral on social media. Ronaldo’s move led to huge losses to the beverage manufacturer following which it became the talk of the town. Fans expected Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who is also a huge admirer of Ronaldo, to emulate the Portuguese star’s move.
But to the dismay of many, Kohli left the Coca Cola bottles alone during his press conference ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final. The Indian skipper too had a couple of bottles of the beverage in front of him during his pre game press conference and ignored it the way he has been doing away with the balls outside the off stump.
