Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw has been crowned the winner of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria.
A thrilling three horse race saw the Scandinavian Eurovision stalwarts fighting off strong competition from Russia and Italy to claim the title, topping the leader board with 365 points.
The victory is Sweden’s sixth and places them just one spot behind record holders Ireland in the Eurovision league tables.
Zelmerlow was the firm favourite in the months preceding the competition with bookies – and RadioTimes.com – tipping the upbeat track to storm to victory.
However, Russia’s Polina Gagarina proved incredibly popular with voters. At one stage it looked as though she would pull away from the competition, much to the disappointment of the crowd who booed the Russian entrant.
Gagarina finished in second place, ahead of Italy, Belgium and Australia, with Latvia, Estonia, Norway, Israel and Serbia rounding out the competition’s Top Ten.
