Brentford Head Coach Thomas Frank is one of those Champions. Thomas spoke to the Daily Mirror earlier this week about mental health, as well as a range of other topics.

Thomas said: “It’s something I am passionate about and proud to support it. These are difficult times, going into the unknown as people are afraid of losing their business, afraid of getting the virus or a loved one getting the virus. That can create a lot of negative thoughts.

“It’s extremely important people are speaking to each other because when it’s out there in the open you soon discover other people are feeling the same. It’s a time for all of us to help people to show our support and to help."

Thomas also spoke about Brentford's season so far and the resumption of football. Read the full piece here.
