Breaking News: Iker Casillas And Carlos Puyol Comes Out As Gay Couples.
Real Madrid and Spain legend Iker Casillas has come out as gay via his official Twitter page this afternoon.
The 41-year-old former goalkeeper, one of the greatest of the modern era, has become surely the most high-profile player to ever publicly come out.
See below as Casillas tweeted his news, calling for ‘respect’ from followers and fans…
Casillas was married to Sara Carbonero between 2016 and 2021, and they have two children together, but Casillas has now bravely told the world his real story.
The former goalkeeper played for Real Madrid for 16 years, winning a number of major honours such as five La Liga titles and three Champions League crowns.
This was quickly followed by a reply from former Spanish international and Barcelona Captain, Carlos Puyol who approved the post which has sparked speculations that they may be a couple.
Casillas and Puyol also won the World Cup and two European Championships with the Spanish national team, making several appearances for their country.
We applaud Casillas for his courage here and hope this will make it easier for other high-profile footballers and athletes to go public about their sexuality in future.
