A behind-the-scenes photo has supported Eurovision winner Damiano David's argument that he had not been filmed snorting cocaine during the broadcast, and was in fact looking at a broken glass.

Italian group Måneskin won the competition with their track 'Zitti e Buoni' scoring 524 points, but singer Damiano was forced to deny claims he had been taking cocaine after a clip of him appearing to lean down onto a table was shared online.

Following the show, Damiano spoke in a press conference to explain why he was leaning forward.

One journalist asked: "I have to ask this because there was a sequence during the broadcast when you are seen in the background leaning over the table and seem to be snorting something.

"Online, people are suggesting that you are taking cocaine. What was it?"

To which Damiano explained: "Thomas [guitarist Thomas Raggi] broke a glass... I don't use drugs. Please guys, do not say that.

"Don't say that really. No cocaine please, do not say that."

Now, a Twitter user has shared a photo which shows a broken glass on the floor near the table the Italian band were sitting at, backing up Damiano's denials.

In a post on Instagram, the band said they would happily do a drugs test to prove they hadn't been taking cocaine.

A statement read: "We are really shocked about what some people are saying about Damiano doing drugs.

"We really are AGAINST drugs and we never used cocaine. We are ready to get tested, 'cause we have nothing to hide.

"We are here to play our music and we are so happy about our Eurovision win and we wanna thank everyone for supporting us.

"Rock n roll never dies. We love you."

In a statement Eurovision said the singer would be drugs tested, and also confirmed there was a broken glass.

"This was requested by them last night but could not be immediately organised by the EBU," the statement said.

"The band, their management and head of delegation have informed us that no drugs were present in the Green Room and explained that a glass was broken at their table and it was being cleared by the singer. The EBU can confirm broken glass was found after an on site check.

"We are still looking at footage carefully and will update with further information in due course."
