Euro 2020 teams could face fines for removing sponsors drinks from press conferences


Teams at Euro 2020 could face fines if their players move drinks provided by sponsors at news conferences, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba have done in recent days.

On Monday, Portugal captain Ronaldo removed two bottles of Coca-Cola and encouraged people to drink water.

The next day, France midfielder Pogba, a practising Muslim, discreetly removed a bottle of Heineken beer.

Italy’s Manuel Locatelli also replaced Coca-Cola with water on Wednesday.
