Coca-Cola has scrapped plans to feature Wayne Rooney’s face on the side of millions of cans after its bosses in America branded him ‘disgusting’ for allegedly sleeping with prostitutes while his wife was pregnant.

The image of the 24-year-old Manchester United and England footballer, who earns £600,000 a year in sponsorship from the soft-drinks giant, was set to appear on cans and bottles of Coke Zero in a multi-million-pound ad campaign to run from now until 2011.
The £100,000-a-week striker became embroiled in a tawdry scandal last month after Jennifer Thompson claimed she had enjoyed three-in-a-bed sex ­sessions with Rooney while his wife Coleen was five months pregnant with their son Kai.
