Luis Rubiales suspended by Fifa following Hermoso kiss

Fifa’s Disciplinary Committee said he will be suspended from “all football-related activities at national and international level” for an initial period of 90 days following his conduct at the Women’s World Cup final in Sydney last weekend.

“The chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee and in order to preserve, among other factors, the fundamental rights of the national soccer team player Ms Jennifer Hermoso and the good order of the disciplinary proceedings before this disciplinary body, has issued two additional directives (article 7 FDC) by which he orders Mr Luis Rubiales to refrain, through himself or third parties, from contacting or attempting to contact the professional player of the Spanish national football team Ms. Jennifer Hermoso or her close environment,” a statement from Fifa added.
