Since we brought you the epic news that British pro footballer Jake Daniels had come out, the response has been understandably astounding with messages of support coming from all over the world. 

 

From the Prime Minister of the UK himself, Boris Johnson, to legendary actor Sir Ian McKellen, the praise for the 17-year-old’s bravery has been across the board so we thought we’d collect a few for you.

 

Both sides of the political aisle were keen to applaud Daniels with Labour Deputy Leader Angela Rayner saying that he was an inspiration and both right and left leaning news stations carrying the news in a positive light. 

 

There is a lot to unpick in the coming months and if Jake’s coming out helps Premiership players live there truth then all power to them.  A lot of people are saying how they wish it shouldn’t BE such a big deal, and it shouldn’t, but with players openly showing support along the way has helped massively.

 

With the World Cup happening this year in a country with harsh punishments for gay people, it will be interesting to see players put there money where their mouth is on the international football stage.
