Spain’s football chief Luis Rubiales resigns after World Cup kiss scandal

Spanish Football Federation chief Luis Rubiales, engulfed in a scandal over allegations he gave an unsolicited kiss to a player on the Women’s World Cup team last month, says he will resign from his position as president.
Rubiales announced his resignation in a statement on Sunday in which he said his position had become untenable, with the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) later confirming he had sent a resignation letter to acting president Pedro Rocha.
A Spanish prosecutor filed a complaint with the High Court against Rubiales last week for sexual assault and coercion over his kiss on the lips of Jenni Hermoso.
