Russian MP sings as protest against Eurovision result

A Russian MP has broken into song in parliament as a protest against Austria's victory at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Oleg Nilov sang a verse of a Russian folk song called Black Crow, following Conchita Wurst's success at Saturday's competition.

Mr Nilov told the Russian parliament "dark forces" had prevented Russia's own entry, the 17-year-old Tolmachevy twins, from winning at the contest.
