The controversial head of the European Commission has denied that he has a problem with alcohol during an interview in which he drank four glasses of champagne.

Allegations have circulated around Brussels in recent years about Jean-Claude Juncker’s drinking and one senior diplomatic source has said he “has cognac for breakfast”.

In an interview with a French newspaper he defended his record as he consumed numerous classes of champagne.

In 2014 it emerged that Mr Juncker’s drinking habits had been discussed at the highest levels by European leaders who privately have concerns over his lifestyle.

A week before the UK referendum vote a video emerged of an apparently-drunk Mr Juncker taken at a May 2015 EU summit welcoming Viktor Orban, the hardline Hungarian prime minister, as “the dictator” before giving him a playful slap on the cheek.

“The dictator is coming,” Mr Juncker is heard to say, before locking a shocked Mr Orban in a clumsy embrace while Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council looked on, visibly embarrassed.

Defending himself in an interview with the Liberation, he said: “Orban, I always call dictator, I am like this. As soon as someone breaks the mould they are obviously crazy or an alcoholic.

“You think I’d still be in office if I was having cognac for breakfast? It really makes me sad and it has even led my wife to question if I lie to her, as I do not drink when I’m home.”

He also went on to blame his unsteady walking on problems with his leg after a serious car accident.

He said: “I have a balance problem with my left leg that requires me to grab the rail when on a staircase. After a lunch I grabbed a Dutch minister by the arm and he said that I was drunk.

“This problem goes back to a serious car accident. In 1989, I spent three weeks in a coma, and then six months in a wheelchair.”

Mr Juncker insisted that the only “personal problem” he suffered from is fatigue.

He said: ‘Being president of the European Commission is not the same as being prime minister of Luxembourg. I have to work fourteen, fifteen hours a day and that I was not used to.”
