Sweden won the 60th Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday in Austria. 28-year-old Stockholm singer Mans Zelmerlow claimed top honours with the song “Heroes”.
He was presented with the trophy by Conchita Wurst who won the contest last year with the song Rise Like A Phoenix and said following his win,
“I’m so extremely happy. I want to thank all of you for voting and supporting me. I just want to say that we are all heroes, no matter who we love, who we are or what we believe in. We are all heroes.”
From the Eurovision website later:
“It was absolutely amazing. I didn’t hear it when they first said it. I thought Russia or Italy would win it. But then I did it, and I was so happy. My feelings are now all over the place. I am so proud, so excited, so full of joy.”
Top six were as follows:
