Eurovision songwriter John Ballard behind Russia's hope

Scot John Ballard has written Russia's entry for the Eurovision.

"You Are The Only One" will be performed by Sergey Lazarev during the 61st annual song contest held at the Ericsson Globe arena in Stockholm.

The Swedish-based songwriter told BBC Good Morning Scotland's Gary Robertson that he is "regarded as a bit of a traitor" as Swedes take the contest very seriously.
