Professional soccer player Collin Martin lands a date on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

In June last year, the 24 year old came out in a Tweet ahead of Minnesota United's Pride match in support of the LGBT community against FC Dallas.

In the tweet, Martin shared a photo of himself wrapped in a Pride flag alongside a statement. 

Since coming out, Martin has become the second-ever player to come out during a Major League Soccer career and is currently the only openly gay MLS player.

Now, while appearing on the hit American TV show, the soccer player took part in a game where he swiped left or right to various men in a bid to find a date.

After picking just three hopeful suitors, Martin then had to pick one of the men to go on a date with – sort of Blind Date with Tinder.

After picking the one guy he wanted to date – much to the surprise of Corden but not for us! – the two went on the date and both agreed that they would want to see each other again!
