Australian Rugby has sacked one of its biggest stars. Israel Folau has won 73 caps and was expected to play at this year’s World Cup in Japan. He’s now in trouble – although he’s appealing – after posting on social media that “hell awaits” gay people. Folau is a committed Christian who describes himself as “living for Jesus Christ”. Should he have been sacked for his religious beliefs? We talk to Jack Murley who hosts the LGBT Sports Podcast and also Harriet Bradshaw, a BBC journalist who has made a film about young people trying to live a gay and Christian life. Producer: Philly Beaumont, Duncan Barber Mixed by: Nicolas Raufast Editor: John Shields.
