    Anton Hysén, who plays professional soccer in Sweden for Utsiktens BK, has come out. The Daily Mail reports that the 20-year-old athlete told Offside magazine, “I am a footballer. And gay. If I perform as a footballer, then I do not think it matters if I like girls or boys."

    Hysén is the son of Glenn Hysén—a well known British soccer player who played professionally in the 1980s.

    Here's a clip of an interview from earlier this year. It's in Swedish. For those of you who don't speak it, this isn't where he comes out, but you can see how insanely cute he is.
