According to a report from The Guardian, the 41-year-old athlete earned his right to stay in the UK after winning his appeal against the Home Office.

The judge presiding over the case, Lorraine Mensah, ruled in favour of Macharia after she stated gay men in Kenya faced “discriminatory laws that create a hostile environment in which gay men are exposed to a real risk of discrimination.” Homosexuality is currently illegal in Kenya, with people convicted facing a possible 14-year jail sentence.

Before Monday’s (19 July) ruling, the Bristol Bison player had been in a legal battle with the immigration resource for the last five years.
