Italy’s Manuel Locatelli became the latest player to replace a fizzy drink sponsor with water at Italy’s post match press conference following their win over Switzerland.
Locatelli produced a Man of the Match performance to inspire Italy to a 3-0 victory over Switzerland on Wednesday evening.
The 23-year-old midfielder, who plays his club football with Sassuolo, netted a brace at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Ciro Immobile also got himself on the scoresheet as the Italians scored three goals for the second successive Euro 2020 Group A match.
However, he caused a stir on social media by copying Cristiano Ronaldo’s Coca-Cola stunt.
Ahead of Portugal’s Group F clash against Hungary earlier this week, Ronaldo went viral after moving two bottles of purposely placed Coca-Cola bottles out of sight.
