Juncker cancels Davos trip over flu

The president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has cancelled his visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos after being laid low with stomach flu, the commission’s chief spokesman Margaritis Schinas said.

The president of the European Commission was due to give a speech in the glitzy Swiss ski resort tomorrow in what EU sources said was planned to be a show of the union's strength.

"The president has a stomach flu that will not allow him to travel to Davos,” the Telegraph cited Schinas as saying.

The spokesman added that Juncker will stay at home to recover.
