West Ham’s Matt Jarvis Didn’t Have To Do This…

Matt Jarvis didn’t have much to gain from posing for the front cover of British gay magazine Attitude. But he did it anyway. In the accompanying interview he claimed:

“[Being gay] is everyday life. It’s not something that’s going to be a shock. I’m sure there are many footballers who are gay, but when they decide to actually come out and say it is a different story. It’s one that I’m sure they’ve thought about many times. But it’s a hard thing for them to do.”

Subsequent newspaper stories made sure to mention that Jarvis, recently capped by England, is married. To a woman, we assume.

Still. Well done, lad.
