Arsenal legend Thierry Henry admits he suffered with depression throughout trophy-laden playing career and opens up on ‘tough’ period in charge of MLS outfit Montreal Impact

Despite being one of the world's top footballers and lifting the game's biggest prizes, including the World Cup with France in 1998, two Premier League titles at Arsenal and the Champions League at Barcelona, Henry struggled with doubt and mental demons. He has admitted to adapting to his challenges, but refrained from speaking out during his playing days.

In an interview with the Diary of a CEO podcast, Henry said: "Throughout my career, I must have been in depression. Did I know it? No. Did I do something about it? Obviously no. But I had adapted in a certain way. I was lying for a very long time because society wasn’t ready to hear what I had to say."
