Mahela Jayawardena Takes a Jibe at Cristiano Ronaldo While Responding to a Fan who Compared Sri Lankan Cricketer To CR7 for Promoting Coca-Cola

Cristiano Ronaldo’s off-the-field antics of getting rid of Coca-Cola during the press conference seem to have impressed many. Thus the netizens started comparing him to cricketers and celebrities who promote beverages. A netizen took a jibe at former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara who promote the brand for money. Now, this tweet surely did not go down well with Jayawardena and he responded to the post with a picture where the Portugal star is seen promoting Coca-Cola.

While taking a jibe at Ronaldo and the fan, he wrote quite an interesting caption which read, “Oops!!! You did it again!! should do the skydive without the parachute next time.” A CR7 fan jumped in defence of Ronaldo and pointed out that the advertisement was done 16 years ago and people change over the years. The Sri Lankan cricketer had an interesting response to the same.

Check out the tweets below:

Jayawardena’s response:

As one may recall, Cristiano Ronaldo had removed the bottle of Coca-Cola lying right in front of him during the conference. This happened before Portugal’s opening game against Hungary. This act caused the beverage company to lose 4 billion dollars in a day and post this, even Manuel Locatelli had snubbed the beverage during a press conference.
