(Reuters) - Coca-Cola Co <KO.N> reported quarterly sales that topped Wall Street estimates on Tuesday, as more consumers reached for new versions of its sugar-free sodas and sparkling water.

Volumes, a key indicator of demand, grew 2 percent in the third quarter ended Sept. 28 on strong performance of its trademark Coca-Cola brand.

Revenue fell 9 percent to $8.2 billion (6.4 billion pounds), hurt by the divestiture of its low-margin bottling operations.

Analysts had estimated sales of $8.17 billion, according to Refinitiv estimates.
