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.
SPIKE: It's a terrible thing, love is. Been there myself. (Pause) It ended badly.

ANYA: Of course it did. It always does. Seen a thousand relationships. First there's the love and sex, and then there's nothing left but the vengeance. That's how it works.

I have to agree with this:

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