Justin Fashanu was Britain's first £1m soccer player and, even more than a decade after his death, was the only one to come out as gay. But what was the story behind his suicide in 1998?
For Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper, Brian Deer retraced Justin Fashanu's life, from abandonment as a child in London's East End, to the English cities of Norwich and Nottingham, where his sports career reached its zenith. And then on to Maryland exurbs, north of Washington DC, where a seedy error with a teenage boy called time on Fashanu's game.
