Spain star Jenni Hermoso demands FA chief who kissed her on lips is punished and 'exemplary measures' are taken | The Sun
JENNI HERMOSO has demanded Luis Rubiales is punished and "exemplary measures" are taken.
The Spain star was kissed on the lips by the Spanish FA president following Sunday's Women's World Cup final.
Despite since apologising for his actions, there are calls for Rubiales to resign amid intense criticism of his behaviour.
He was seen holding Hermoso as he kissed her on the lips during the trophy presentation after Spain's victory over England.
Hermoso has now demanded he is punished and said her union, Futpro, would "defend my interest".
In the statement released with her union and agency on Wednesday, Hermoso said: "My union Futpro, in coordination with my agency TMJ, are taking care of defending my interests and being the interlocutors on this matter."

Futpro added: "We are working to ensure that acts such as those we have seen never go unpunished, that they are sanctioned and that the exemplary measures are adopted to protect women footballers from actions that we believe are unacceptable."
The midfielder previously revealed on Instagram that she "didn't like" Rubiales' actions.
However, a statement released on her behalf later defended his behaviour.
Hermoso won the silver ball at the tournament as Spain won their first Women's World Cup.
