Speaking to Swedish public television SVT on Tuesday, Sand said he confessed his problem it has been a "relief" and that he had been meditating his retreat for "a long time".

"I feel very liberated because I do not have to answer questions without having to lie, I've always been a very open person," he said.

Sand, who is part of the international Swedish footballer Emma Berglund, said that after being diagnosed with the disorder, she will now start a hormone treatment, although she did not want to reveal whether she is going to undergo a sex change operation.

The announcement has prompted numerous messages of support in social networks to Sand, who said he felt overwhelmed by the samples of "love" received, from relatives and friends as well as strangers.
