The UK Eurovision contestant SuRie was the victim of a stage invader during her performance.

Midway through her rendition of 'Storms don't last forever', a man wearing a bandanna grabber her microphone and shouted "Nazis" and "freedom".

During the invasion, she calmly stood aside until the protestor had been removed from the stage, then continued with her song.

The way SuRie calmly dealt with the invasion has been widely praised on Twitter:

Naturally, the moment has also become a meme:
