The man who invaded the Eurovision stage while UK entry SuRie was singing has been bailed pending charges, the contest’s operator has confirmed.
The singer, real name Susanna Marie Cork, was performing her song Storm live from Lisbon, Portugal when a man wearing a bandana and t-shirt with a slogan promoting his book jumped on stage and snatched her microphone.
A statement from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), that runs the song contest, said: "The stage invader was questioned by police immediately following the incident, and then held in custody until Monday, May 14 when he was seen in court in Lisbon.
"He has now been released on bail, with charges pending the result of an ongoing police inquiry.
"The EBU, RTP and Portuguese Authorities take security very seriously and an investigation into what happened is ongoing."
This comes after a previous statement from them saying they “regret” the invasion took place, and confirmed the man was “in police custody”.
