Well that's neat for GB...winder how the N. Ireland bit feels about it.

I'm not sure there is, overall, a particularly friendly environment for public figures to come out, but things are better than they were even a decade ago, I suppose.

I have to agree with this:

Quote:[I]Football Association chairman Greg Clarke told MPs he was "cautious" of encouraging a player to come out because they may suffer "significant abuse" from fans.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live on Wednesday, Clarke said he stood by his "personal view" that "vile abuse" from a "small minority on the terraces" must be solved before any gay footballers "take that risk" to come out.
[/I]

I think it will be a long time before players come out without the risk of abuse.
