Matt Lucas: First openly gay footballers will be superstars

Matt Lucas says the first openly gay footballers will be icons who'll get "every advertising contract".
The Doctor Who and Little Britain star grew up an Arsenal fan and is now patron of the club's LGBT supporter's group, the Gay Gooners.
He says that, while things are changing in the game, he doesn't expect a professional player to come out for at least five or ten years.
