PORTUGAL – Salvador Sobral, winner of Eurovision 2017 for Portugal has been hospitalized as he awaits a heart transplant. The latest news is that he was taken to a Lisbon hospital suffering from cardiac deficiency which can only be corrected via a heart transplant. He is currently in the Santa Cruz hospital in Carnaxade as he awaits the transplant operation.
He is being controlled with machines which take the actions of his heart and is under constant observation.
Salvador was rumoured to be in need of a transplant prior to his Eurovision appearance with everything aimed at the end of the year, this has however been pushed forward as he cancelled a series of concerts last week amid his unavailability to perform in public. It appears that we now know the reason why.
