Spanish FA president sends video to FIFA showing Jenni Hermoso joking about kiss

Spanish Football Federation president, Luis Rubiales, has attempted to defend his actions by sending a video to FIFA which shows Jenni Hermoso joking about their kiss after the Women’s World Cup final.

Rubiales has been provisionally suspended for 90 days by FIFA following his conduct during the Women’s World Cup final in Sydney earlier this month.

The president of the Spanish Football Federation has been angered by the backlash he has received after he grabbed Hermoso by the head and kissed her on the lips, claiming that he is the victim of ‘social murder’ and ‘false feminism’.

Hermoso has repeatedly denied consenting to being kissed by Rubiales, while in a show of solidarity, Spain’s players refused to represent the national side until the 46-year-old resigned or was removed from his position.

Rubiales, via the Spanish Football Federation, has accused Hermoso of ‘lying’ about the incident and even threatened legal action against her in a statement which was subsequently deleted.

But according to El Espanyol, Rubiales is now attempting to defend himself in FIFA’s ongoing investigation by providing world football’s governing body a video which shows Hermoso joking about the kiss with her Spain teammates shortly after the World Cup final.

In her statement released last week, Hermoso said: ‘I felt vulnerable and the victim of aggression, an impulsive, sexist act and without any kind of consent on my part.

‘I just wasn’t respected.’
