British parents praise Coca Cola for dropping Man Utd star Rooney

British parents have welcomed Coca Cola's decision to end their deal with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

On Wednesday the decision not to renew his £600,000-a-year deal was hailed as "a victory for decency".

Margaret Morrissey, of the Parents Outloud campaign group, said: "These footballers are held in high esteem by this nation's youngsters and there is an onus on them to show a decent face to the children.

"I am extremely happy that Coca-Cola has severed links with Wayne Rooney and I hope other companies take note."
