Netherlands crowned Eurovision 2019 winners as the UK come last

Duncan Laurence has won Eurovision 2019 for the Netherlands.

The Dutch singer stormed the leaderboard to beat Italy and Russia to reach top of the leaderboard with 492 points.

On the other hand, however, the UK's act Michael Rice came bottom of the leaderboard with just 16 points.

Duncan's win won't come as a surprise to many as he has been the bookies' favourite to win the competition since releasing his single Arcade earlier this year.

The Netherlands hasn't won the competition for 44 years since Teach-In in 1975, previously taking home the trophy in 1957 and 1959.

Australia were the second favourites to win, with their odds dropping slightly after their staging was revealed in the first semi-final.

Italy only just lost out to the Netherlands by 27 points with 465 points, with Russia coming third with 369.

Joining the UK at the bottom of the leaderboard were Belarus with 31 points and Germany with 32.
