Spanish prosecutor files complaint against Luis Rubiales over 'unsolicited kiss' at Women's World Cup

The Spanish prosecutor has filed a complaint against the Spanish FA chief Luis Rubiales for sexual assault and coercion.

It comes after Jenni Hermoso filed a complaint with the prosecutor’s office on Wednesday.

The football player has accused Rubiales of sexual assault after he kissed her on the lips following Spain’s 1-0 victory over England last month.

Hermoso has repeatedly said it was not consensual, but a defiant Rubiales has refused to resign.

The controversy has overshadowed Spain’s historic win – and led to the sacking of the team’s head coach Jorge Vilda, who was seen applauding Rubiales during the speech in which he refused to step down.

Rubiales was suspended by FIFA on 27 August after he claimed he was the victim of a “witch hunt” by “false feminists.”
