Ok this is not football, but fair play to cricket star Joe Root for this quality moment today.
Watch the video below as Root shows his class by calling out an opponent for using the word ‘gay’ as an insult.
Unfortunately, homophobia still rears its ugly head in football and probably all sports, so it’s important to see a top level athlete call this kind of language and behaviour out.
Well done to him and let’s hope these prehistoric attitudes can be stamped out of sport and society as a whole!
Joe Root is a sound bloke.
Well in Joe Root.pic.twitter.com/gErPRcTHs7
