Michael Sam has become the first openly gay player in a pro-American football team, after he was picked by the St Louis Rams during a draft.
After hearing of the news he would be playing for St Louis, he hugged, kissed and tweeted a picture of himself with his boyfriend to thousands of fans:
Thank you to the St. Louis Rams and the whole city of St. Louis. I'm using every once of this to achieve greatness!! http://t.co/QESdOJVzsw
