    I hear

    Hello!
    Explain this sentence please.

    I hear Sarah has won some money. What is she going to do with it?

    Why do they use present simple? (This is from English Grammar in Use).
    Thanks in advance!

    I hear means that I have been told about something, I know what's happening.
