Description

Adam Goodes is a former Australian Football League player of Aboriginal descent. He became a controversial figure in Australia following a racist incident against him during a AFL game.
 
After that, he faced taunts and boos from AFL crowds, which ignited a race row across Australia. 
 
He's now left the sport and is a private businessman but continues his anti-racism advocacy.
 
His story is now being told in a new documentary called 'The Australian Dream', which explores what Adam's experience shows about modern day Australia. 
 
You can also watch the interview on the Channel 4 News YouTube channel.
 
Warning: Strong and racially sensitive language.
