After witnessing Spain’s 1-0 victory over England in the World Cup, Rubiales joined the delegation in awarding medals to the winning team. However, amidst the celebrations, a camera captured a moment where Rubiales kissed Hermoso on the lips without apparent consent. This incident prompted strong backlash, with numerous prominent figures from Spanish football condemning his actions.
