England Rugby World Cup winner Ben Cohen has retired from the sport but has been back in the spotlight to launch The Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation.
It is the world's first organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the damaging long-term effects of bullying and stopping it wherever it occurs.
The movement particularly focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.
