Osian Jones has revealed that he received a phone call from Sir Elton.
In an interview with the BBC’s LGBT Sport podcast in April, the Wales athlete described himself as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Not long after, he got a call: bbc.com/games/.
”His agent phoned me first. I thought it was one of the boys back home joking.”
The hammer thrower called his mother after hearing from the star’s agent–and before Elton phoned–and she also thought someone was pulling his leg.
”I wasn’t sure what was happening,” Jones shared. ”He just asked what the reaction had been like and how training was going.”
