Gareth Thomas Sits Down to Speak with Ellen

Just over a year ago rugby star Gareth Thomas shocked the sports world by confirming he is gay, making him the first active athlete in a major sport to come out. Since the announcement Thomas has retired from international rugby and rugby union, but he is making waves as a star in rugby league.

A little over year after his announcement, Thomas took some time out of his schedule to cross the pond to sit down with Ellen on her morning talk show. Ellen who made headlines herself over a decade ago when she came out has been an outspoken advocate for gay/lesbian rights. The two stars were able to connect on a personal level, and as a result you get something that you don't always see on a day time talk show.

Check out this is a touching interview.
