ITALY defender Leonardo Bonucci swigged both beer and Coca-Cola after winning Euro 2020 as he claimed: “I’ll drink everything tonight.”
The 34-year-old, who scored the Azzuri’s equaliser in their win over England, was involved in many of the visitors’ celebrations at Wembley.
And Bonucci was in no mood to follow Juventus teammate Cristiano Ronaldo when it came to enjoying UEFA’s sponsored drinks at the post-match press conference.
Portugal captain CR7 started a trend when he put a pair of Coca-Cola bottles out of the way and told the cameras to ‘drink water’.
Ronaldo’s move whacked a staggering £2.84billion off the fizzy drink giant’s market value.

Italy star Manuel Locatelli later followed in the forward’s footsteps by getting rid of the Coke after a match with water put in its place.
But Bonucci, who was the hero of Italy’s Euro 2020 success, enjoyed both a fizzy drink and a beer after his team’s memorable triumph.
After swigging a heineken at the presser, the centre-back said: “I deserved this one didn’t I?”
Bonucci then picked up a Coke bottle and drank from it before stating – “I’ll drink everything tonight.”
His decision came after UEFA told players to STOP moving sponsors’ drinks in press conferences – or risk their team getting fined.
Scottish hero John McGinn had previously turned the saga into a bit of a joke when he cheekily asked why there was ‘no Coke?’
Clearly not one to blindly follow trends, Russia coach Stanislav Cherchesov merrily drank the Coca-Cola supplied for his media duties.
Ukraine forward Andriy Yarmolenko poked further fun by asking Coca-Cola and Heineken for sponsorship deals.
