Bookmakers awaited the winner of the Eurovision 2018 and the show watched by millions worldwide was not disappointing....especially when it comes to the controversy.

A man stormed the stage while the UK's entry, SuRie, was performing at the Eurovision Song Contest.

The man was swiftly apprehended and pulled off stage. 

SuRie was performing her song Storm when a man wearing a rucksack ran onto the stage, grabbed her microphone, and appeared to say: "Nazis of the UK media, we demand freedom."

The man who invaded the stage during SuRie's performance is in police custody.

A total of 26 countries are taking part in the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.  The bookmaker Paddy Power is espeically uneasy over Ireland's entry as millions of euros could be paid out following a betting frenzy at long odds on Ryan O'Shaughnessy.
