London, 14 september 2019.
Rugby Wales legend Gareth Thomas has revealed he is living with HIV, having kept the diagnosis a secret for years.
The 45-year-old became the first UK sportsman to disclose he has the virus during an interview with the Sunday Mirror – before revealing in a video on his Twitter page that he had been “forced” to make the admission.
Thomas came out as gay in December 2009. The following year he was voted the most influential gay person in the UK in the The Independent on Sunday Pink List and received Stonewall’s Hero of the Year award.
