Travis Cloke opens up about the time he “broke down”

NEIL MITCHELL

Travis Cloke says social media has made life very tough for modern footballers.

Cloke’s final season was interrupted by mental health issues, which forced him to take a two-month break from the game.

He told Neil Mitchell an incident where he was abused online by a 10-year-old was a key moment.

“I broke down,” he said.

“Tears came to me, I was an emotional wreck.

“It’s an area that we never knew could be so strong and so passionate.”

Cloke, 30, retired on Wednesday, ending a 256-game career in which he kicked 452 goals.
