Luis Rubiales resigns as president of Spanish FA over Jenni Hermoso kiss

News Correspondent

Spain’s football chief Luis Rubiales has resigned, after prosecutors began criminal action against him for kissing a member of his country’s women’s team following their World Cup final victory.

When he kissed Jenni Hermoso on the lips, he sparked anger not just at his own behaviour but also over the way female players are treated in Spain and more generally in the football world.
