England women's captain Casey Stoney publicly reveals she is gay

England women's captain Casey Stoney says she is no longer "frightened" of what other people might think after coming out as gay.

The centre-back, who recently re-signed for Arsenal Ladies, reveals she was inspired by the reaction to Tom Daley's recent announcement and says she wants to live in a world where it is "not news anymore".

Stoney has 116 caps for England and also captained Great Britain at the 2012 London Olympics.
