And speaking to The Sun’s Time For Change Debate, AJ said: “Athletes have the biggest platform, so we all judge on that.

“I think an individual trying to make a change is a lot more difficult than a union of people trying.

“And I think the images that we need to represent are important.

“The same way I rally for Under Armour, the same way I rally for Range Rover is the same way I should rally for the African Carribean community.”
