Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, has 
admitted that he does not own a smartphone.

"I shouldn't say, but I have to say it - I still don't have a 
smartphone," the 62-year-old told a news conference.

The light-hearted confession came as he helped launch the EU presidency 
of digital-savvy Estonia.

Mr Juncker joked that the country's Prime Minister Juri Ratas had "sent 
me, like in the 19th Century, a postcard inviting me to Tallinn".

According to EU sources, Mr Juncker's telephone of choice is an old 
Nokia mobile.

The EU chief is a former prime minister of Luxembourg, but said that 
with such technophobic tendencies, he "couldn't become prime minister of 
Estonia; this would be totally impossible".

Estonia is one of the world's most digitally-connected countries, and 
was the first to introduce online voting.

It hopes to push digital issues as part of its six-month stint as 
president of the EU, which begins on Saturday.
