Judge Launches Investigation Into Rubiales Kiss

Judge Launches Investigation Into Rubiales Kiss

A Spanish high court judge has launched an investigation into former Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales.

It follows after Rubiales resigned following the controversy over him kissing player Jenni Hermoso during the trophy presentation at the Women's World Cup final last month.

Hermoso filed a legal complaint last week over Rubiales kissing her on the lips, insisting the kiss was not consensual.

The complaint, filed with Spain's high court, was against Rubiales for sexual assault and coercion.

Judge Francisco de Jorge of the National Court on Monday accepted the complaint.

It is understood that a magistrate will be assigned to lead the investigation to determine whether the case will go to trial or be dismissed.

Should Rubiales be found culpable, he could carry a punishment ranging from a fine to four years in prison.
