Gay activists have praised Wales rugby union legend Gareth Thomas after the 100-Test veteran announced he is gay.
The Cardiff Blues fullback, 35, told the Daily Mail newspaper on Saturday that keeping his sexuality a secret had made his adult life agony and feelings of guilt towards his wife Jemma drove him to suicidal despair.
Former Wales and British and Irish Lions captain Thomas is one of few top international sportsmen to say publicly that he is gay.
He is Wales' most-capped player with 100 appearances, and ninth in the all-time Test try scoring list with 41, including one from his three Lions caps.http://www.foxsports.com.au/story/0,8659,26511208-23217,00.html
Suprising for myself, i really did not think he of all players would be gay. Along with Cockbain and Charvis, Thomas was one of my fav welsh players when growing up.

It's sad that this is considered news-worthy...
