Let’s drink to Kohli’s health!
So, Virat Kohli has spurned the cola endorsement because he does not consume the beverage. Noble indeed, reckoned his supporters, and cynicism aside, he has indicated what is healthy and what is not.
Social media is abuzz with reactions to Kohli’s thanks-but-no thanks response to the cola giant. One sports writer remarked on Facebook: “He captains an IPL franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore named after a whiskey brand. Does one therefore assume he consumes ‘hard’ drinks but is opposed to ‘soft’ drinks? Strange upturned world we live in!”
And, a former first-class cricketer remarked: “Kohli refuses cola when he has enough; Gopichand refused when he had nothing. Not comparing, just saying.” As for us, we salute 2001 All England champion and ace badminton coach P Gopichand, and let’s drink some good old paani to Kohli’s health and the spurning of the endorsement deed.
