Biship now 47 says it “hurt” because “it affected my life”.
Bishop, who now lives in America, suffered homophobic taunts at away grounds and claims that the issue could have prevented him from representing his country.
“Nothing against gay people. People are free to be what they want and there’s no issue. It didn’t hurt me to be called it – it hurt me because it affected my life,” Bishop said.
