Paul Pobga, French football player, became the latest footballer to take issue with Euro 2020’s official beverages after removing a bottle of Heineken beer that had been placed in front of him at a news conference on Tuesday.

Pogba, a practising Muslim, moved the bottle of Heineken’s non-alcoholic 0.0 brand when he sat down to speak to the media after he was named ‘Man of the Match’ in France’s 1-0 win over Germany.

The move came a day after Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo removed two bottles of Coca-Cola at a news conference and held up a bottle of water, saying “Agua” – Portuguese for water.
