'Alfie' going Stateside to share his story on the Ellen show

Former Wales and Lions captain Gareth Thomas has been in Los Angeles this week, as a guest on one of America’s biggest chat shows with Ellen Degeneres. A year after coming out as an openly gay man, Alfie opens his heart to Ellen, a few weeks after appearing in the pages of Rugby World Magazine celebrating his first ‘birthday’.
