Martin Evans from The Telegraph reports:
The England wicketkeeper Steven Davies has announced he is gay – becoming the first serving professional cricketer to publicly out himself.
The 24-year-old Surrey player said he had decided to make the announcement after months of personal conflict.
In a frank and moving interview with Monday’s Daily Telegraph, Davies, who started his professional cricketing career with Worcestershire when he was 18, said he could no longer bear to lie about his sexuality.
Davies, who told his family he was gay five years ago and has enjoyed their complete support, said it was a huge relief to finally come clean and be honest with the wider public.
And he said he hoped his decision would help other young gay people to have the confidence to follow in his footsteps.
