Drinking four cups of coffee a day significantly reduces the risk of an early death, new research suggests.

A study of 20,000 people found that the risk of dying young was cut by up to two thirds if four coffees were consumed daily.

The findings come a month after two studies found that fans of the hot drink were less likely to die of several fatal conditions.

Scientists said that, while they were not recommending a daily brew, it was clear people need not worry too much about caffeine intake.

In the latest study, which was carried out over a 10-year period, researchers looked at data on 20,000 Spanish graduates with an average age of 38.

During the research, 337 of those surveyed died.

Those who drank at least four cups of coffee a day were 65 per cent less likely to die during the study than those who never drank it, the researchers suggested.

According to the results presented at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Barcelona, the risk of dying early was 25 per cent lower for each extra two cups drunk.
