Merkel: gay footballers should have no fear

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday became the latest high-profile figure to tell gay footballers they should have no fear of revealing their homosexuality.

“I am of the opinion that anyone who sums up the strength and bravery – and we have a long tradition of this behind us in politics – should know that they live in a country where they have nothing to fear,” said Merkel at a forum in Berlin to discuss integration in sport.

“The fact that there are still fears for some people for their own situation means we need to send out a clear message: you must not be afraid.”
