Unreal: Rugby Star Ben Cohen Retires To Fight Homophobia

FYI, this man is straight. Here's a link to a story about him in Britain's The Independent:

"Cohen believes he could play for another two years but has turned down offers from clubs in England and France. Instead he will focus on heading up the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation, which tackles bullying and homophobia.

"I would never have imagined my career was going to move in this direction after my rugby career, but here we are – it's happening," he said. "I have reached the top in my sport. It has been an incredible journey and has put me in the privileged position I am in today to be able to work on these exciting new projects through the Stand Up Brand.

"As athletes, it is not enough just to have strong bodies, we must have strong characters and use our voices to support those who need and deserve it.""

He's also extremely handsome:
