    Clive stood up for his colleague, Diana

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Is it correct to have a comma after "colleague"?

    Clive stood up for his colleague, Diana when others bullied her.

    No, a single comma is distracting.

    You could add another one after Diana, but I feel that no commas are necessary.
