As we wrote in our round-up of EU leaders’ doorsteps, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk is the favourite for the European Council President post but it was not yet a done deal. However, have we just inadvertently had confirmation that Tusk has landed the job?

Watch this video from around 16:30 in:

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades tells outgoing European Council President Herman Van Rompuy:

“We have news, I understand that Donald [Tusk] it’s okay.”

And Van Rompuy replies:

“Yes, but keep it.”

That sounds like a bit of a spoiler, but we will keep following the summit and provide you with real-time updates on Twitter just in case there are any last minute surprises.
