Former president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) Luis Rubiales

The former president of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) Luis Rubiales was arrested this Wednesday at the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas airport in Madrid, after having anticipated his return to Spain from the Dominican Republic.

After landing in Madrid, agents of the Central Operative Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard acted immediately, while dozens of media cameras took the opportunity to record the footage.

Rubiales has been arrested over the influence-peddling investigation into his time at the helm of the Federation and which is looking into irregularities in contracts to play the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia.

He will testify before the Civil Guard at the Armed Institute in Barajas about possible crimes related to business corruption, mismanagement and money laundering between 2018 and 2023, when Rubiales was the number one of the Federation, a position he abandoned it when he left this post because of the kiss-for-kiss incident with Jennifer Hermoso last summer.
