Reports in the UK this week have been claiming that two Premier League footballers are set to come out as gay. Nobody has come out yet, and speculation is starting to build as to who the two stars could be.
One high profile figure who's been speaking on the topic of gay footballers is former Arsenal legend and Sky pundit, Thierry Henry.
Speaking on Sky News yesterday Henry said that in today's society coming out shouldn't be considered an issue at all, and that it's only becoming like that because everyone is talking about it in such a dramatic sense.
For me it is not a problem, but by making it a problem it soon becomes a problem. Going around asking do you think its right, do you think its wrong. In the society we are living in it's ok, it's normal.
We are living in a different time, a different world, people need to accept that.
Asked about whether he felt others would be as willing to accept a gay team-mate Henry said;
I can’t talk for everyone, but if I was in a dressing room, that guy would still have been my teammate, and I would still give him the ball, I will still see him the same way, I would still go out with him, or have lunch.
