Luis Rubiales’ Mother Goes On Hunger Strike Inside A Church In Protest

The mother of Spain’s suspended football chief Luis Rubiales, who is under fire for planting an unsolicited kiss on the lips of player Jenni Hermoso, went on hunger strike today in support of her son.

Angeles Bejar began her protest inside the Divina Pastora church in the southern seaside town of Motril, saying she would continue until Hermoso “tells the truth” about what happened, a family member told reporters outside of the church.

46 Years old Rubiales, grew up in Motril and his father was the resort town’s former mayor.

FIFA suspended Rubiales on Saturday after he forcefully kissed Hermoso on the mouth after Spain won the Women’s World Cup in Australia on August 20, sparking an outcry.

Hermoso posted a video on Instagram showing the celebrations in the changing room in which she responded to teasing from team-mates about the kiss by saying: “I didn’t like it, eh!” while laughing.

A statement released by the federation later quoted her as saying that the kiss was “a natural gesture of affection and gratitude”.

But on Friday, Hermoso said “at no time” did she consent to the kiss following the 1-0 win in the final against England in Sydney, which Rubiales described as “mutual, euphoric and consensual”.
