Thomas currently has 336 professional appearances for club with 51 goals. And 42 appearances internationally for wales with 5 goals - including most notably his unbelievable goal against Belgium in the 2016 euros - perhaps his most career defining moment to date.
Beyond this, in 2018 Thomas founded the turmeric co . Having experienced 2 potentially career ending injuries he began researching dietary supplements that would help manage his pain, inflammation and immune system - his 15 years of research and developed finally led to the best in class selection of turmeric, ginger and beetroot shots they bought to market.
Thomas is such an incredibly impressive individual. So intelligent and so articulate - his outlook on life and understanding of the internal world vs the external world and how we can best navigate these in order to live a happy fulfilled life is some of the best advice we have ever had on this podcast. We talk all about the power of gratitude and what he believes allowed him to achieve what he’s done so far - and it’s only the beginning.
