Cristiano Ronaldo moved bottles of Coca-Cola from view during a Euro 2020 press conference, before declaring 'Water!'.

Watch the incident below:

The 36-year-old is still regarded as one of the best footballers in the world, in large part because he keeps himself in tip-top condition.

Evidently tournament sponsor Coca-Cola isn't part of his very strict diet, and so the Portugal captain moved two bottles placed in front of him to the side, instead holding aloft his water and proclaiming 'Agua!' - which is 'water' in Portuguese.

Ronaldo recently opened up about the strict diet he follows to keep in shape.

Speaking to ESPNFC, he said that a typical day involves two lunches and two dinners.

He'll start his day with ham and cheese and a side of yogurt, before snacking on avocado on toast when he gets hungry later in the morning.

His first lunch will be chicken and salad, his second usually some sort of fish.

Then for dinner he'll have two meals of either fish or meat.

We'd imagine he sticks strictly to water beverage wise, judging from his reaction at the press conference.

Portugal play their first match of the tournament today (Tuesday 15 June) at 5pm against Hungary and they will be relying on their talisman to pull it out of the bag on the big stage once again.

Despite his advanced years, in footballing terms, Ronaldo backed himself to do the business.

He said: "The most intelligent thing about a footballer is the ability to adjust. I am more mature now.

"If a player wants to play for many years he needs to know how to adjust and adapt and the numbers speak for themselves. From 18 to 36 I have managed to adjust and adapt.

"I have always been able to win and on a collective level part of a team that has been able to win. I have shown that the key is to adjust all along my career."
