'DON'T WIN EUROVISION SPANISH ENTRANT TOLD

Spain's Eurovision contestant has admitted the country would struggle to host the event if it were to win.

Directors from broadcasters TVE joked to Pastora Soler, who will represent them on Saturday, "Please, don't win!"

"If we won, I think it would be impossible to stage the next edition because it costs so much money," she told ABC Punto Radio.

Spain last won the competition in 1969, when it shared a four-way tie with the UK, the Netherlands and France.

Spain also won the contest in 1968, 12 years after it started, with singer Massiel's song La La La.

Soler will sing her ballad Quedate Conmigo (Stay With Me) at the final in the Azerbaijan capital Baku on Saturday.

It is written in the contest rules that the public broadcaster of the nation that wins must host the following year.

"I think it is not the moment, neither for Spain nor for Spanish public, to win Eurovision," Soler was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.

The Spanish government has slashed spending in public television, resulting in the cancellation of several popular programmes.
