    EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker greeted EU ministers and is seen slapping some of them across the face as well as calling one of them a dictator.

    Jean-Claude Juncker, Head of the European Union became a source of much laughter, as footage was picked up by the media, showing him slapping other EU ministers across the face as he greeted and took pictures with them at an official EU conference.

    The EU leader clearly had too much wine to drink; and can be seen in the footage jumping from one foot to the other, as he greets the EU leaders.

    The tipsy EU head can also be seen slapping some of the leaders across the face as well as comparing ties with others.

    He was even heard calling the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, a "dictator."

    For the campaign leaders in the UK EU referendum, this footage played right into the hands of the Brexit team, with one MP tweeting that Juncker was a buffoon.
