"Justin Fashanu was the UK's first footballer to profess his homosexuality

A football team has been named after openly gay striker Justin Fashanu who killed himself almost 11 years ago.

The former Nottingham Forest and Norwich player was 37 years old when he was found hanging from the rafters of an east London garage in May 1998.

The Justin Fashanu All-stars were christened at a special event in Brighton, supported by the FA.

The team has been created by the Justin Campaign which promotes the inclusion of openly gay players in football.

The pink and black team kit which is sponsored by DJ Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim, was unveiled at the event on Saturday."
