    The entire Spain Women's coaching staff have quit their jobs in the wake of Luis Rubiales' kissing World Cup winner Jennifer Hermoso.

    The entire World Cup celebrations that should have been happening have been overshadowed by Luis Rubiales and the Spanish FA, less than a week after they lifted the trophy down under.

    During the trophy presentation, Rubiales kissed Spain forward Jennifer Hermoso on the lips, something which she has unequivocally stated she did not consent to. Calls for the president of the Spanish FA followed, with it widely believes Rubiales would step down at the RFEF's annual AGM on Friday.

    However, a defiant Rubiales opted to instead re-affirm his position as president, stating five times during a lengthy speech that he would not be resigning. Rubiales said: "I will not resign."
