Former Real Madrid and Spanish International goalkeeper Iker Casillas has come out gay.
Casillas’ declaration of being gay is coming at a time when he was already in a relationship with a woman for more than a decade.
He disclosed this on Sunday afternoon via his verified Twitter account.
He wrote: “I hope you respect me: I’m gay. #felizdomingo”
Casillas had dated a female Spanish-Portuguese sports journalist, Sara Carbonero, since 2009.
The duo later got married in 2016 but divorced in 2021.
They shared two sons together, Martín and Lucas, born in January 2014 and June 2016, respectively.
