The embattled president of Spain's soccer federation has left his job. A furor arose after he kissed a star player on the mouth after the Women's World Cup final.

Spain's government and FIFA have begun disciplinary proceedings against Luis Rubiales for his non-consensual kiss of player Jenni Hermoso at the tournament final. Rubiales is refusing to resign.
A union speaking for Jenni Hermoso, the player who was kissed, called for "intervention in the face of sexual harassment or abuse." Spain's soccer federation scheduled an emergency meeting on Friday.
A furor erupted after Luis Rubiales kissed player Jennifer Hermoso at a ceremony. "It was an unacceptable gesture and Mr. Rubiales' apologies are not enough," the acting prime minister said.
"Yesterday was the best and the worst day of my life," wrote Carmona, who scored the only goal in Spain's historic win over England.

The top-ranked and two-time defending champion U.S. did just enough to squeak into the knockout round. Portugal dominated possession all game as the U.S. struggled to create offensive chances.
