Rubiales arrested in corruption investigation



Luis Rubiales, the former president of the Spanish football federation (RFEF), was arrested yesterday as part of a corruption investigation.

He was released soon after being detained on arrival in Madrid from the Dominican Republic.

He is suspected of receiving illegal commissions when negotiating a lucrative deal to stage the Spanish Super Cup competition in Saudi Arabia.

Mr Rubiales was in the Dominican Republic when police searched his home last month.


They also searched the football federation headquarters and made several arrests.

Mr Rubiales is also separately due to go on trial for sexual assault for kissing the player Jenni Hermoso on the mouth after last summer’s World Cup final.
