Complex and surreal - the secret life of Justin Fashanu.

In the late 1970’s Justin Fashanu was the pin-up boy of British football. A 17 year old with the physique of a heavyweight boxer, the looks and charisma of a Hollywood film star and the touch of a genius. He had the world at his feet but there was one problem; he was gay. As abuse rained on him from the terraces, team mates, trainers and even his own brother, the world of Justin Fashanu imploded in dramatic fashion.
