'the latest'

The Guardian writes, 'Steven Davies, the 24-year-old Surrey and England wicketkeeper, has become the latest high-profile sportsman to announce he is gay'

Er, 'the latest'? It's accurate, technically, but the implication is that gay sportsmen have started regularly coming out, which they haven't. Gareth Thomas did, and, er... I am sure some abroad. By which I mean: I assume some abroad. This is excellent news, obviously, but the overall situation is still ridiculous.

(This guy has still not been sacked.)
