Ronaldo recently became the highest goal-scorer in Euro history, scoring ten goals and going past legendary Frenchman Michel Platini. He also holds the record for having played the most Euro editions (5).

Ronaldo also made headlines recently when he had removed a couple of Coca Cola bottles during a Euro press conference, which is sponsoring the event. He hinted at drinking just water, while his move reportedly cost the soft drink company a $4 billion drop in market value.

Since then, many others have followed in his footsteps. While some have taken a dig at him, some companies have also trolled him for the same.
