Spanish Football Association President, Luis Rubiales, declines to resign despite kissing player incident.

Rubiales, aged 46, shared a kiss with forward Jenni Hermoso on the lips following Spain’s 1-0 victory against England.

He was seen celebrating exuberantly by grabbing his crotch at the final whistle.

During an extraordinary general assembly convened by the federation, he emphatically stated, “I won’t step down, I won’t step down.

What’s happening is a character assassination.”


Rubiales offered an apology for the kiss on Monday, just before FIFA, the global football governing body, initiated disciplinary actions against him on Thursday.

Subsequently, on Friday, he expressed regret for the crotch-grabbing incident during celebrations in the VIP area at Stadium Australia,

in the presence of Queen Letizia of Spain and her 16-year-old daughter.
