Luis Rubiales, the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), has announced his resignation.
This decision has been made in light of the ongoing investigations surrounding his controversial kiss on Spain forward Jenni Hermoso, which was not consensual.
Following a criminal complaint filed by Hermoso earlier this week, prosecutors have taken the case to Spain’s highest court, accusing Rubiales of sexual assault and coercion.
FIFA has also suspended Rubiales for 90 days while they conduct their own investigation.
“I have handed in my resignation to the acting president, Pedro Rocha.
“I have also informed him that I have done the same with my position at UEFA, so that a replacement for my role as vice president can be sought.
“After the suspension by FIFA, in addition to the rest of the proceedings against me, it is clear that I will not be able to return to my position,” Rubiales confirmed in an open letter published on Sunday.
