TST Podcast | The 2018 Ballon d’Or, The Imperfect Baller, Player Allegiance, Katie Taylor in Boston


Gareth Reynolds, David Smith and Ronan Mullen debate who they think should win this year’s Ballon d’Or, discuss the decision players like Declan Rice and Jack Grealish have faced in pledging their allegiance to England, as well as previewing Katie Taylor’s upcoming fight in Boston on Saturday.

Gareth also speaks to 26-year-old Donegal native, Cormac O’Brien, about mental health in sport.

Over the past six weeks, Cormac has taken to social media to document his ten years of living with mental health issues in an attempt to help others deal with their own challenges.

If you don’t follow Cormac on social media already you can find him @theimperfectballer on Instagram along with a lot of tips and techniques to deal with stress and anxiety.
