Czech Republic’s team has announced that Mikolas Josef has been sent to hospital as a precautionary measure after his rehearsals.
Mikolas’ rehearsal performance of “Lie To Me” involved a high level of acrobatics, bringing his signature sass and wood bamboo to the big stage in Lisbon. He impressed with a diverse performace, and there were no telltale signs during the performance that he was injured. He did, however, stop his first rehearsal due to what he perceived as a potential health and safety issue on the stage.
In the press conference, Mikolas’ team stated that Mikolas aggravated his back due to the high acrobatic nature of his performance. No doubt his performance brought the house down, but it looks as if it may have come at a cost to his health.
Mikolas remains in good spirits despite his injury, but will remain in hospital today and has cancelled all further press for today.
I can confirm that I got injured during the rehearsal and the situation got worse after several hours. I cant even walk now. Got back from the first hospital and I am now heading to another one. Thanks for all your messages and prayers we are all doing our best to get me up on my feet soon. ???? I will perform no matter what.
“I can’t even walk now”
Several hours later — around 20:00 CET — Mikolas shared an Instagram post of him on a stretcher in hospital.
The Czech star is seen on his back with his legs raised, with doctors and nurses monitoring his condition.
“I can confirm that I got injured during the rehearsal and the situation got worse after several hours.”
“I can’t even walk now. Got back from the first hospital and I am now heading to another one. Thanks for all your messages and prayers — we are all doing our best to get me up on my feet soon.”
“I will perform no matter what.”
We send our love to Mikolas and wish him a speedy recovery.
