Australian football star comes out as gay
Adelaide United’s Josh Cavallo has publicly announced he is gay, becoming the first footballer to open up about their sexuality while playing in the A-League
The midfielder, who has played 19 games for the Reds since making the move to Adelaide from Western United, opened up about his sexuality in a video posted by the club.
The A-League club stated that it stood alongside Cavallo for being true to himself, supporting the star stating they will continue to love and support him as a member of its diverse family.
“I am proud to publicly announce that I am gay,”Cavallo said in a video released by the club.
“Adelaide United has made me realise football is more than just a game – it is a family.”
The 21 year-old is the first openly gay male athlete to play in the A-League competition. He said he wanted to create a safe space for others to come forward.
Other active and openly gay males playing professional football elsewhere in the world include Collin Martin, who plays for San Diego Loyal in the second tier of football in the USA, as well as Phuti Lekoloane, who plays in South Africa’s third tier.

World Athletics bans transgender women in female category events
Any transgender athlete, who has gone through male puberty, won’t be allowed to compete in female world ranking competitions
World Athletics has banned transgender women from competing in the female category at international events.
Any transgender athlete, who has gone through male puberty, won’t be allowed to compete in female world ranking competitions.
The governing body’s President says the decision was guided by the principle to protect the female category.
“Decisions are always difficult when they involve conflicting needs and rights between different groups, but we continue to take the view that we must maintain fairness for female athletes above all other considerations,” said Lord Coe.
“We will be guided in this by the science around physical performance and male advantage which will inevitably develop over the coming years.
“As more evidence becomes available, we will review our position, but we believe the integrity of the female category in athletics is paramount.”
Goalkeeper Leandro Requena scores longest range goal of all-time
The ball travelled 101 metres, if it is ratified by Guinness World Records
Argentine goalkeeper Leandro Requena has scored one of the longest-range goals of all-time.
With his Cobresal team leading 2-0 in the 77th minute against Colo-Colo in the Chilean football league, Requena took a goal kick.
Colo-Colo goalkeeper Brayan Cortes was well outside of his penalty area, and the ball bounced over his head and towards goal.
Cortes stumbled as he tried in vain to chase the ball as it crossed the line.
If the goal is ratified by Guinness World Records, it would break the record for the longest range goal in history.
The current record is 96.01 metres, set by Tom King in 2021 during a match between Newport County and Cheltenham Town in England’s fourth tier.
