Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has told a reporter: “I want to punch you in the face”, after being quizzed about his wife’s finances.

He made the remark after facing questions about bank deposits in the account of First Lady Michelle Bolsonaro by a former aide to one of his sons.

“I want to punch you in the face, OK?” the president replied to the reporter from O Globo, according to audio released by the Brazilian newspaper.

It was reported earlier this month that the aide, Fabricio Queiroz, deposited 72,000 reais (£9,800) in the first lady’s account between 2011 and 2018.

He was an aide to Senator Flavio Bolsonaro, the president’s eldest son, when he was a member of Rio de Janeiro’s legislative assembly.

Questions about Mr Queiroz have continued to hound the Bolsonaro family in an investigation that has appeared to annoy the president and dent his promise not to tolerate corruption.
