2023 Women’s World Cup: FA President Kisses Spanish Female Player During World Cup Victory Celebration

The Spanish Football Federation president, Luis Rubiales kissed a female Spanish player, Jenni Hermoso, during the celebration of their Women’s World Cup victory.

However, the Spain midfielder, Hermoso, has defended Rubiales after he came under fire for kissing her on the lips on Sunday.

After kissing Hermoso during the medal ceremony, Rubiales was criticised on social media, following the Spain’s 1-0 victory over England to lift the trophy for the first time.

“I didn’t like it,” said Spain midfielder Hermoso on an Instagram live stream after the game, although she was laughing as she spoke.

Later Hermoso said the moment was a “natural gesture of affection”.

“It was a totally spontaneous mutual gesture because of the immense joy that winning a World Cup brings,” said Hermoso, in comments passed to AFP by the Spanish federation.

“The president and I have a great relationship, his behaviour with all of us has been outstanding and it was a natural gesture of affection and gratitude.

“A gesture of friendship and gratitude cannot be gone over so much, we have won a World Cup and we are not going to deviate from what is important,” she added.
