The gloating has prompted a furious backlash from Express.co.uk readers, who urged their European neighbours to “grow up”.
One said: “EU folks are sour and jealous that we are strong enough to stand alone.
“None of them have the gumption to follow our footsteps.”
One Express reader said: “A Spanish user said ‘there is no one to support the UK, period, they are a racist and ignorant society.
“We could explain that it only applies to 17,4 million Brits, there are 50 million others who are not like this.”
Another Express user said: “It’s time they grew up and behave like adults not sulking children.”
Approximately seven million Britons watched James Newman score zero points in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
“Norway null points.
“UK null points.”
This year’s Eurovision song contest was held in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The tournaments winning song was sung by Zitti E Buoni of rock band Maneskin.
The Italian performers played to a crowd of 3,500 fans at the Ahoy Arena.
This year’s broadcast of the event saw the biggest viewership for a Eurovision final since 2014.
