  • Saturday evening. I release a video on to social media.

  • Hello. I'm Gareth Thomas and I want to share my secret with you.

  • Why?

  • Because it's mine to tell you,

  • not the evils that make my life hell,

  • threatening to tell you before I do.

  • And because I believe in you and I trust you.

  • I am living with HIV.

  • At the same time, my interview with the Sunday Mirror goes online.

  • Radio and TV begin reporting the news.

  • The former Wales rugby captain Gareth Thomas

  • has revealed that he is living with HIV.

  • The former Wales rugby captain Gareth Thomas has revealed...

  • But I don't want to see any of it, so I head for my bed.

  • Tomorrow, I will compete in my first-ever Ironman.

  • Tomorrow I will face the world as a man living with HIV.

  • But tomorrow, will the world want to face me?

  • Sunday, 6:00 AM.

  • Thank you, bad. Come here, my lovely.

  • Have a good one, yeah? Enjoy it.

  • I'm out in public -

  • nervous, tentative, expecting the worst,

  • but so far not receiving it.

  • Oh, yeah, and I'm also doing an Ironman.

  • There you are. That's me, look, in the yellow cap.

  • Six months ago, I couldn't swim full stop.

  • Today, I swim two and a half miles at sea in one hour and 20 minutes.


  • Next, it's a 112-mile bike ride.

  • I'm out of the water and I'm alive.


  • Enthusiastic husband aside,

  • I'm not really aware of how people are reacting to me, to my news.

  • I hear the odd shout of encouragement...

  • ..clock a couple of flags.

  • But it's not until I start the marathon,

  • stripped down, slowed down, easily recognisable,

  • that it begins to sink in how people are reacting to me.

  • How do I feel?

  • I dunno.


  • Unburdened, overwhelmed,

  • still scared of what lies in front of me.

  • Then, as I hit the main street, I see my mum and Stephen

  • and I stop breathing.

  • I am literally choked with emotion.

  • But mostly relieved.

  • Relieved that finally, at 45 years of age,

  • after a lifetime of amazing moments,

  • amazing achievements, this is my biggest.

  • To appear for the first time ever in front of 40,000 people,

  • in front of the nation, in front of the world

  • as me.

  • The real, real me.


  • And Gareth's husband, Stephen, presents the medal.

  • Congratulations, Gareth.

  • You smashed it.

  • My name is Gareth Thomas.

  • I'm living with HIV.

  • And you know what?

  • I'm all right.

Saturday evening. I release a video on to social media.
