In Refs. arXiv:1506.0061 and arXiv:1606.0167 the compatibility of LHC data taken until 2012 with a heavy scalar with a mass around 270 GeV have been discussed. The features of the data and the phenomenological framework studied there are reviewed. A number of predictions are made, including the anomalous production of multiple leptons. The decay of this heavy scalar includes the Higgs boson. The impact on a number of observables related to the measurement of the signal strengths of the Higgs boson at the LHC is discussed.
