Jennifer Hermoso and Luis Rubiales kissing incident
Recently, Rubiales kissed Hermoso on the lips during the medal ceremony following Spain’s 1-0 victory in the World Cup.
The incident has since sparked controversy and led to a strike by 81 Spain players, who are refusing to play until Rubiales is removed from his position.
Hermoso later issued a statement saying that she was “surprised” by the kiss and that it was not something that she expected or wanted.
She also issued another statement, clarifying that she did not give consent to the kiss and that Rubiales kissed her “without any consent”.

The incident has been widely covered in the media, with many people expressing their opinions on the matter.
Some have criticized Rubiales for his actions, while others have defended him and accused Hermoso of overreacting.
