OREANDA-NEWS. The head coach of the Russian national football team Stanislav Cherchesov has become a hero of social networks.

At a press conference before the match of the second round of the European Championship group round with the Finnish team, the 57-year-old specialist ironically responded to the gesture of the leader of the Portuguese national team, Cristiano Ronaldo, who earlier demonstratively removed two bottles of Coca-Cola from the lenses of photo and video cameras and urged people to drink regular water.

Cherchesov, in turn, preferred to use sweet carbonated water, effectively opening the bottle with the help of another.

This gesture has become a reason for jokes on social networks. Some, for example, remembered the news about how the Coca-Cola Company lost 1.6% of its shares in the stock market amid Ronaldo's speech. It was clarified that the Coca-Cola company lost about $ 4 billion after Ronaldo's trick at a press conference.

Also in social networks, the leader of the French national team, Paul Pogba, was mentioned, who removed a bottle of beer from the table at his press conference.

Russian Twitter users also explained Cherchesov's gesture with humor, writing that "Cherchesov restored the position of Coca-Cola."

The Russian national team, after two rounds, takes second place in Group B at Euro 2020 and has three points to its credit.
