Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose has opened up on his battles with mental health.
The 29-year-old spoke about his personal experiences as part of Mental Health Awareness Week for a BBC One documentary back in May of last year.
Rose revealed he has had depression on the eve of last year’s World Cup, which he says was triggered by a combination of injury and family tragedy.
His honesty was praised by The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William who also took part in the program along with former Spur Jermaine Jenas.
Both Jenas and Rose discussed their decision to speak out during their appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live’s The Friday Football Social show.
