Eurovision organisers have confirmed that the lead singer of Italy's winning act Måneskin did not take drugs during the show.

The rumours were sparked during a camera cut where footage showed Damiano David leaning over a table.

Some had speculated that the singer had taken a substance in the Green Room.

The European Broadcasting Union has carried out a review of all available footage.

Meanwhile, the lead singer also took a drug test today, which returned negative.

In a statement, the EBU states "No drug use took place in the Green Room and we consider the matter closed."

The EBU says it was alarmed by the speculation that has unfairly affected the band.

It has congratulated Måneskin once again and wished them huge success in the future.
