Many hailed Alberto's decision as a "wonderful triumph," praising his bravery to go public in a world where such moments are still rare.

In addition to the kissing photo, Alberto also shared pictures of his family celebrating his team's promotion with him.

Relevo, a Spanish online sports site, described the photo as "necessarily normal" and said that it "moves you."

Alberto follows in the footsteps of other professional footballers who have come out as gay, such as Czech Republic international Jakub Jankto and Australian Josh Cavallo.

Both received widespread support and encouragement after publicly sharing their sexuality.

Footballers like Alberto, Jakub, and Josh are helping to break down barriers and promote acceptance and inclusivity in the sport.

As more athletes feel empowered to come out and share their true selves, the hope is that it will pave the way for future generations and create a safer and more welcoming environment for all.
