Ian Thorpe - 14 Jul 2014 
Ian Thorpe, Australia’s most decorated Olympian, revealed he was gay in an emotional television interview on Sunday, ending years of speculation about the champion swimmer's sexuality.

The five-times Olympic gold medallist made the admission to British journalist Michael Parkinson in a pre-recorded interview on Australia's Channel 10 in which he shared his relief in freeing himself from living "a lie".
