Okay, this is getting insane now: Spanish prosecutors will seek two-and-a-half-year prison sentence for Luis Rubiales over ‘kissgate’ scandal – and if convicted the disgraced former FA president will pay Jenni Hermoso £85,000 in compensation

Spanish prosecutors have announced they are seeking a two-and-a-half-year prison sentence for the country’s former FA chief Luis Rubiales over the infamous ‘Kissgate’ scandal.

They said on Wednesday they also wanted him to pay Jenni Hermoso €100,000 (£85,000) in compensation if he is convicted at trial

They laid out their pre-trial demands in a six-page indictment made public on Wednesday.

They said they were seeking a one-year jail term for a sexual assault charge and a separate one-year six-month prison sentence for coercion linked to his alleged attempts to get Jenni to speak out in his defence over the ‘unwanted’ kiss he gave the Women’s World Cup winner last summer.

Madrid-based judge Francisco de Jorge paved the way for Rubiales to be tried earlier this year after recommending he be put in the dock.

He said his long-running probe had uncovered ‘solid evidence’ pointing to the potential illegality of the kiss.

Mr De Jorge, who has already quizzed the former football boss and his alleged victim separately in closed sessions at Spain’s centralised Audiencia Nacional court, said in a five-page ruling made public in January: ‘The investigation has revealed the existence of solid evidence the kiss Luis Manuel Rubiales Bejar gave the player Jennifer Hermoso was not consensual and was a unilateral and surprise initiative on his part.
