Fifa suspends Luis Rubiales from all football-related activity over Hermoso kiss

The president of the Spanish FA, Luis Rubiales, has been provisionally suspended by Fifa, six days after he grabbed forward Jenni Hermoso by the head and kissed her on the lips during the Women’s World Cup final.

The decision came after a tumultuous Friday in which a defiant Rubiales refused to resign and sought to cast himself as the victim, prompting Hermoso to stress that she did not consent to the kiss and the women’s team to announce that they would not take part in national matches until the federation changes its leadership.
