Damiano David from the Italian band said he did not take drugs.

The lead singer of Eurovision winners Maneskin has denied suggestions he was caught on camera taking drugs during the broadcast.

Damiano David from the Italian band said he did not take drugs and refuted the idea he was taking cocaine.
