He is doing the documentary to handle the news himself after a tabloid was going to break it otherwise. That’s the whole point. He hasn’t spoken about it before but kept it private.


Isn't the documentary on this week, it surely hasn't been made overnight, did the tabloid give him time to make it to coincide with the Iron man event

You give it out, you take it back it`s all part of the game

May well have done.

They generally give advance warning that they have a story and are going to break it.

When I was in school, a teacher had advance warning they were going to break a story about him. Nothing criminal. Just embarrassing. He killed himself before they published.

Horrific vultures the whole lot of them.

So the tabloid politely waited and lost the story? Can’t see that in any universe let alone ours.

That’s my understanding.

Why do so many people on here not like him. Is it just the Cardiff connection?

They do it all the time. Normally in return for an exclusive interview about how the person is coping / dealing with it, reactions, follow ups etc etc. They get to look more compassionate and still get a story. Breaking it against the will of the person makes them look bad if the person is popular.

If you follow which tabloid (s) are carrying all that about Gareth Thomas, you’ll have a pretty good idea of who had the story in the first place.

I don’t like him because he is a complete and utter moron. He is not a hero. Being Gay and HIV positive doesn’t make you a hero. He is a head slapping Tw*t who needs to be out of the media spotlight not fully immersed in it. He is as thick as two short planks and slaps his head like a complete cretin. The only time I ever looked up to the man is when he took over the Lions captaincy in New Zealand and he played some really good rugby. The man is an imbecile.

Very proud to be voted Planet Swans Poster of the Year 2017 by my fellow posters. Especially on a site that nearly had 20 million impressions last year.

He’s made a documentary about it for the bbc ffs! You can’t call a documentary revealing he’s got HIV (with him being a willing and active participant) as being outed by the gutter press!!


If that’s the case, it puts a completely different slant on it. If he’s backed into a corner, he’s better off announcing it himself.

Feel bad saying this, but it’s a little bit little boy crying wolf with him. He’s such an attention/sympathy whore, that I can completely believe he’s timed it to coincide with a high profile public appearance.

There have surely been occasions over the past months / years since his diagnosis where he could have announced it if it was just for publicity. Far higher profile public appearances than doing a triathlon.

Iron man. Little bit more than a triathlon.

For me HIV+ MAN COMPLETES IRONMAN, is a tremendous story in its own right,,irrespective of the fame of the participant.

He planned the documentary 6 months ago, according to the papers.

And also according to the papers, he decided to go public because the tabloids had the story and were camped outside his parents’ house. He said he consulted lawyers about it.

I’m not sure why everyone has decided that all this happened last week?

Many HIV+ people have absolutely no signs of any illness - their blood tests wouldn’t show a positive status any longer if they were tested again because the viral load is so low. I suppose that’s one of the points he will make.

But yes, Ironman is different to a standard triathlon. God knows how anyone can do it to be frank.

Not sure I’d agree with that to be honest. Higher profile yes, bigger story/making him look a hero, probably not. Analysing a six nations game on the bbc the day after would reach more viewers, but wouldn’t have the same impact as being mobbed and cheered by a crowd of thousands whilst completing a gruelling endurance event that only a fraction of the population could manage.

On a side note, I’m not disputing the jumped before he was pushed bit, but I can’t see any tabloid sitting on this kind of story for 6 months or more, simply out of fear of one of their rivals finding out and running their story.
