The video made by broadcaster RTP and shared by the EBU about the homecoming welcome for the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest.

More than 2000 people gathered at the Lisbon Portela Airport to give a hero welcome to the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest winner Salvador Sobral. Upon the arrival at the airport during the press conference, the artist reacted to the massive homecoming welcome. “I am not a hero, Cristiano Ronaldo is. What I have to do is continue to make my music, that it has some meaning… and that passes to the audience,” he stated showing how humble an artist can be.
