It took a while for people to realize I was acting.

I’ve never had an ‘I’ve arrived’ moment. I don’t like that word, ‘arrived.’ If you say you’ve arrived, then you’ve achieved your dream. You’ve done all you can. ‘I’m the guy now.’ I don’t like that.
I’m not going on a crusade but I’m proud of who I am. I feel I have achieved everything I could ever possibly have hoped to achieve out of rugby and I did it being gay. I want to send a positive message to other gay people that they can do it, too.

When it comes to belts and rank, I don’t care what belt I am; I don’t care what rank I am. I’m proud that I’ve achieved high ranks through some great instructors around the world, but ultimately, the mat doesn’t lie.

This game wears on you. It tears you down. It’s perpetual motion for some people who’ve achieved a level of independence, like Madonna and Jay-Z – they don’t need to do music anymore. But there’s people who need it. And in that need, that’s when it’s tough and it tears you to pieces.

It’s tough, as Chelsea’s a very special place for me, and I’ve always had a great relationship with the fans, but it became very obvious that I was not in the manager’s plans. I have achieved great things there, but I just needed to play football, and that’s why I got the move to Fenerbahce.

In my day, the only people who achieved real independence were my father, Mary Pickford and Charles Chaplin, who, with D. W. Griffith, formed United Artists. Other than that, everybody belonged to the big studios. They had no say in their own careers.

I can proudly say that for 80 per cent of my life, I achieved what I wanted to. There were very few setbacks. I don’t remember anything that I wanted and did not get. Once I made up my mind about something, I went for it. The easiest thing in life is to give up and I didn’t.
