 The likeness of billionaire Warren Buffett is to grace Cherry Coke cans in China, where the company’s largest investor enjoys a legendary reputation.
Coca-Cola announced over the weekend that a grinning cartoon portrait of the American business magnate would adorn cans and bottles of his favourite flavour following its introduction in the country on 10 March.
Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett’s investment firm, is Coca-Cola’s biggest shareholder with a 9.3% stake valued at about $17bn.
“Incidentally, there is no compensation involved,” Buffett told Yahoo Finance of the use of his image for “a limited promotional period”.
The 86-year-old investor and philanthropist has been photographed on numerous occasions taking a swig of Cherry Coke, earning him the title of “best-known fan” from Coca-Cola’s chief executive, Muhtar Ken 

In Communist-ruledChina, where Chairman Mao portraits are as ubiquitous as brand-name logos, Buffett’s business acumen has made him a celebrity and inspired thousands of Chinese investors to reportedly flock to Omaha, Nebraska, for Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting last year.
While the meeting was livestreamed around the world, simultaneous translation was only offered in Mandarin.
Buffett has in turn lauded China’s “totally miraculous” growth.
As for his enduring appreciation
of Cherry Coke – he invested in Coca-Cola as early as 1985 – Buffett admitted in his shareholders’ letter last February that he consumes enough Coke and candy “to satisfy the weekly caloric needs of an NFL lineman”.
