Adelaide United player Josh Cavallo has come out as gay, becoming the only current top-flight male professional footballer in the world to do so.
The 21-year-old wrote on social media that he was "ready to speak about something personal that I'm finally comfortable to talk about in my life".
"I'm a footballer and I'm gay," the midfielder said in an accompanying video.
"All I want to do is play football and be treated equally."
