As you may know, Portugal’s Salvador Sobral was not well in Kyiv, and only spent the second week of rehearsals in the city. Fast forward to September, and he had to cut short a music tour he was undertaking. Here’s footage from RTP of his last concert… for now.
Salvador is now in Lisbon’s Santa Cruz hospital, and we’re told is awaiting a heart transplant. We at Eurovision Ireland wish Salvador and his family the best of luck, and our thoughts are with them.
Salvador won in Kyiv in May with a score of 758 points, and scoring from every country’s televotes in the process.
