World Wrestling Entertainment star Pat Patterson has come out publicly as a gay man at the age of 73.
During a roundtable conversation with fellow wrestling legends, Patterson said: For once in my life I'm going to be me. I survived all of this (career) being gay.'
He wiped away tears and other wrestlers did too as he revealed a side of himself they had not been aware of.
'I lived with that for 50-some years,' he said.
And for most of those years, he was not alone.
