The unlikely friendship of Christian Louboutin and Gareth Thomas...

From the London Evening Standard:

High heels and drop kicks: Christian Louboutin and Gareth Thomas
What does 101kg of Welsh man meat have in common with 74kg of French aesthete?

As the most successful captain of his national rugby team in recent times, Gareth Thomas tears down opponents to the delight of the crowd; as the most outrageous shoe designer of his age, Christian Louboutin coaxes women into precarious heels for the sexual thrill of men. So you could say that both are used to inflicting pain in the name of pleasure - but their friendship runs deeper than that.

Alfie (as everyone calls Thomas) and Louby (as only Thomas calls Louboutin) met last year, shortly after Thomas revealed that the strain of keeping his homosexuality a secret had destroyed his marriage and nearly driven him to suicide. That made him arguably the most high-profile 'out' sportsman in the world. Louboutin was so moved by the story, he fashioned a special pair of shoes for Thomas and the two became firm - platonic - friends. (Louboutin is in a long-term relationship with a landscape gardener, while Thomas is currently single.)
