Jenni Hermoso: “The president and I have a great relationship, it was a spontaneous mutual gesture of affection”

“You can’t go around any more, we’ve won a World Cup”


The striker of the Spanish soccer team Jenni Hermoso downplayed the kiss given to her by the president of the Royal Soccer Federation, Luis Rubiales, at the medal ceremony after winning the World Cup this Sunday, a “totally spontaneous mutual gesture,” “of friendship and gratitude”.

“It has been a totally spontaneous mutual gesture due to the immense joy that winning a World Cup gives. The president and I have a great relationship, his behavior with all of us has been ten and it was a natural gesture of affection and gratitude,” he said in statements provided by the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).

Hermoso wanted to clarify the moment that runs through social networks on the scene of the celebration of the historic World Cup that Spain won over England, when Rubiales kissed the forward. “A gesture of friendship and gratitude cannot be overturned, we have won a World Cup and we are not going to deviate from what is important,” he added.
