FIFA Suspends Spanish FA President Luis Rubiales for 90 Days Over Alleged Forced Kiss
FIFA's Disciplinary Committee has suspended Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales from all football-related activities for 90 days. The investigation into Rubiales is ongoing, and he is accused of forcefully kissing Barcelona Femeni legend Jenni Hermoso at the World Cup final ceremony.
Rubiales was also ordered not to contact Hermoso and her entourage. The suspension comes after a complaint was filed by Hermoso's lawyer, who said that his client was "deeply shocked and upset" by the incident.
Rubiales has denied the allegations, saying that the kiss was "a spontaneous gesture" and that he did not mean to offend Hermoso. However, the Disciplinary Committee has decided to suspend him pending the outcome of the investigation.
The suspension is a major blow to Rubiales, who has been president of the Spanish FA since 2018. He is a controversial figure, and this latest incident is likely to further damage his reputation.
The investigation is ongoing, and it is not clear what the outcome will be. However, the suspension of Rubiales is a significant development, and it will be closely watched by the football world.
