The Grand Final, held in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev last night, was won by Portugal. Salvador Sobral, singer of the winning entry Amar Polos Dois, described the triumph as a 'victory for music.'

The song was awarded 758 points, to see it narrowly snatch victory from Bulgaria and Moldova. The UK finished on 111 points.

It's the first time Portugal have won the contest in 53 years of trying.
