    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) - EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has played a grand piano on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, according to a photo published by the commission's chief spokesman, Margaritis Schinas, on Friday.

    "An ode to the joy of multilateralism," Schinas tweeted posting the photo depicting Juncker sitting at a grand piano and playing something.

    ​The EU official anthem is based on famous "Ode to Joy" composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1823.
