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.[3] The following year he was voted the most influential gay person in the UK in the The Independent on Sunday Pink List[4] and received Stonewall’s Hero of the Year award.
