Eurovision fans brave rain for COVID testing before final

Even driving rain in Rotterdam could not dampen the enthusiasm of Eurovision fans queuing for their mandatory COVID-19 tests on Saturday (May 22) ahead of the final of the song contest.

The capacity of the Ahoy arena in the Dutch city has been slashed by 80 percent with only 3,500 people allowed to attend live shows and rehearsals.

To get in, performers and the fans must show negative coronavirus tests.

A member of the band representing Iceland, Daði & Gagnamagnið, tested positive for the virus and they will not take part in the live show, with a taped rehearsal being used instead.
